Hydroxyethyl starch-induced pruritus
|Hydroxyethyl starch-induced pruritus|
Hydroxyethyl starch-induced pruritus is an intense itching, lasting for as long as one year, occurring following hydroxyethyl starch intravenous infusion for vascular insufficiency.:401There is no treatment for the itch.
An updated clinical review on storage in different tissues describes a pattern of storage in the Reticuloendothelial System and also the skin (Wiedermann). Differential storage described via immunelectronical microscopy, see Ständer 2001 below.
