Özet

BACKGROUND: Serotonin syndrome (SS) is a common disease entity and could result in death if missed. The incidence of SS is underestimated due to misdiagnosis of many cases, especially the ones with less severe presentation. Many medications have been depicted as the source of SS. We present a case of SS in a patient who received intravenous tramadol and oral gabapentin as pain management after spine surgery.
