Fluorescein is associated with minor adverse effects during retinal angiography, and most of these effects are not severe and not related to immunological mechanism. However, on rare occasions, anaphylatoid reaction can occur, and fatalities involving fluorescein have been described. Life threatening complications after intravenous injection of sodium fluorescein require immediate intervention. Trainings for professionals are needed to standardize treatment for this event.
