Abstract

We report a term infant with gastroschisis who presented with a systemic allergic reaction at a specific time of each day coinciding with infusion from a new preparation of total parenteral nutrition and intravenous lipid emulsion. The source of latex was traced to the rubber stopper of the lipid emulsion. We present this case to highlight the possibility of allergy from this unexpected source in a neonate.
