Misoprostol has been used in obstetrics for a number of years in all trimesters of pregnancy. Apart from its side effect of causing congenital malformations in offsprings of users who have unsuccessfully used it as an abortifacient, it is considered a safe drug with few side effects. We here report a case of severe hypersensitivity reaction to misoprostol in a patient where it was used for first trimester abortion in a case of missed abortion.
