Poster Information
Abstract: 52 year old female with hyper-IgE syndrome (HIES), severe asthma, multiple allergies including propofol, difficult IV access, and severe anxiety presenting for large open ventral hernia repair. Peripheral IV access was unable to be obtained. An inhalational induction was performed and a central like was placed. The case proceeded uneventfully without complication. HIES is a rare primary immunodeficiency disease with skin and pulmonary complications. Surprisingly, allergic reactions are rare in these patients. We present a unique case and management strategies of a patient with a rare disease and challenging access.
