IMPLICATIONS: Indigo carmine dye can cause adverse reactions, most notably hypotensive complications. Indigo carmine dye is often used to localized the ureteral orifices, has been known to cause hypotensive episodes. This, however, is believed to occur only in patients with superimposed sympathectomy. We report a patient who experienced hypotension after indigo carmine administration with no superimposed sympathectomy.
