Pain constitutes an important presenting complaint for emergency department visits. Non steroidal anti inflammatory medications or simple analgesics may not be enough to control the pain. Some patients may need opioid analgesics for pain control. However, opioids may cause serious side effects. In the present case report, we discussed a rare side effect of morphine; anaphylaxis.
