We report a case of maternal anaphylaxis following intrapartum chemoprophylaxis. The term fetus developed severe brain damage as a consequence of intrapartum asphyxia. The lesions resulted from maternal hypotension following anaphylaxis. We discuss the feto-maternal risks and the controversial treatment of such a condition. The increasing number of penicillin-treated parturients will result in further cases of maternal anaphylaxis than previously found.
