abstract

  • We report the largest single-institution review of adverse reactions to injection of isosulfan blue dye during sentinel lymph node mapping in breast cancer. Bronchospasm and respiratory compromise are unusual, and most patients can be treated with short-term pressor support. Patients with a sulfa allergy do not display a cross-sensitivity to isosulfan blue dye.
