Abstract

A 43-year-old woman with a history of lidocaine allergy required dermatologic surgery during pregnancy. To accomplish this without the use of general anesthesia, intradermal allergy testing was performed. This information enabled appropriate anesthetic care for a tissue biopsy at 29 weeks' gestation and subsequent labor analgesia and obstetric management at term.
