Abstract: The case of a 40-year-old woman with severe edema of the face and neck after the injection of a local dental anesthetic is presented. The reaction is attributed to the presence of sodium metabisulfite, and antioxidant, in the local anesthetic. Both the anesthetic and the sodium metabisulfite gave a delayed positive patch-test response.
