A 31-year-old female asthmatic patient received an infusion of metamizole and tramadol for chronic pain at a GP surgery. After a few minutes, the patient developed breaing difficulties and died in spite of resuscitation measures. The general practitioner was suspected of medical malpractice. Medico-legal investigations confirmed the assumption that death was caused by anaphylacitic shock. In spite of temporary intubation into the oesophagus no evidence of medical malpractice was found, however.
