The authors report a case of anaphylactic reaction in a 58-year-old woman during total gastrectomy under general anesthesia. Before induction a peridural catheter had been inserted for the purpose of postoperative antalgia. Anaphylaxis occurred fifteen minutes after the start of surgical resection. The tests performed later led the authors to regard latex as the triggering agent.
