Özet

Adverse reactions to local anesthetics (LA) are commonly reported in patients undergoing dental procedures and other minor surgical procedures. Most of these reactions, however, originate from psychosomatic, vasovagal or toxic conditions and are not immune-mediated. True immune-mediated reactions are considered extremely rare and are estimated to account for less than 1% of all adverse reactions to LA. On the other hand, almost all of the immune-mediated LA reactions that have been reported are related to adult patients. Here, however, we will present a pediatric case proven to be hypersensitive to two different amide-derivative LA's.
