Brunella Guasconi, Silvia Codeleoncini and Giorgio Barzoi

Sulprostone, a syntetic E2 analogue is given to increase uterine muscle tone and recommended for second –line treatment of atonic postpartum hemorrhage. Actually, his use in current clinical practice is increasing, specially after cesarean section; few clinical reports of side effects have been published and a recent large population-based study describe a low rates of severe side effects.

We present two cases of acute pulmonary edema in two patients after Cesarean section with sulprostone administration directly into the myometrium.
