SANCHEZ ACERA, Elián; ARENAS VILLAFRANCA, Jose Javier; ABILES, Jimena  and  FAUS FELIPE, Vicente. Hypersensibility reaction to parenteral nutrition approach: a case report. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2014, vol.29, n.3, pp.695-697. ISSN 1699-5198.

Parenteral nutrition (PN) is essential in the treatment of many hospitalized patients. However, administration of PN is not without potential complications and patients are exposed to related possible adverse reactions such as hypersensitivity. For that reason and because of the complexity of this treatment, PNs are considered by the ISMP (Institute for Safe Medication Practice) a high risk medication. Following is introduced the case of an oncologic patient with severe malnutrition, who after receiving PN for several days, developed a hypersensitivity reaction that could have being associated with intravenous mixture administration. Our aim is to analize the difficulties related with pre-surgery nutrition and to clarify the main possible causes of the reaction.

Keywords : Parenteral nutrition; Allergy; Hypersensibility.
