Abstract

Allergy-like symptoms resulting from the injection of local anesthetics, e.g. during dental treatment, that are reported by some patients, in most cases cannot be explained by hypersensitivity to the anesthetics or preserving agents. It is suggested that these symptoms might be the result of somatization. Ln the present cross-sectional controlled study, emotional state, physical complaints and the doctor-patient-relationship are assessed among patients who presented with intolerance of local anesthetics in a dermatological university department, as compared with patients suffering from allergy against insect toxins. The assessments were performed after the completion of the diagnostic evaluation, using both self-reports and interviewer ratings which were based on a structured interview. Whereas men and women wereequally frequent in the comparison group, women by far overweighed men in the intolerance group. Patients with intolerance of local anesthetics judged their doctor-patient relationships less favorable, had more unspecific physical symptoms, were more depressed (Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale) and were rated by the interviewers to be emotionally more disturbed. However, in the self-reports of anxiety no differences emerged. The results provide evidence for similarities to somatization disorders.
