Abstract

Misoprostol is being used in obstetrics especially during the first and third trimesters of pregnancy. It has become a good drug for prevention and treatment of postpartum haemorrhage. It is considered a safe drug with few side effects. However, we present a report of a rare severe hypersensitivity reaction in a patient
who had sublingual misoprostol for prevention of postpartum haemorrhage.
