The case report presented here is of a primigravida who was admitted with impetigo herpetiformis and was planned for an emergency caesarean section due to fetal distress. General anesthesia was administered. Immediately after extubation, she developed severe laryngospasm, which was relieved by administration of intravenous calcium gluconate. Rest of the postoperative period was uneventful.
