Nicardipine is used in the treatment of premature labor. There are no previous reports in the anesthesia literature of serious side effects associated with this drug. We report a case of pulmonary edema induced by nicardipine therapy for tocolysis in a pregnant 27-yr-old patient admitted to our hospital for preterm labor with intact membranes at 27 wk of gestation.
