In upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, intravenous anesthesia is commonly used due to its safety and improvement in patient's satisfaction and comfort. The aim of this approach is to improve the condition for endoscopy. Although the risks of sedation are reported to be very low with sufficient monitoring, we still have few risks that cannot be overlooked including aspiration pneumonia. There have been two reported cases of aspiration pneumonia after endoscopic submucosal dissection. However, to our knowledge, there has been no reports about aspiration pneumonia developing after endoscopy for a young healthy female. So, we report a first case of unexpected aspiration pneumonia after endoscopy.
Key Words: Gastrointestinal endoscopy; Aspiration pneumonia
