Title

Author
Abstract
The example reported here illustrates the frequent belief that innocent products such as central venous catheters do not produce allergic reactions. However, they might be impregnated with chlorhexidine and elicit serious life-threatening anaphylaxis in patients with allergy to this antiseptic agent.
