Dobutamine stress echocardiography is a frequently used noninvasive method for the evaluation of inducible myocardial ischemia, myocardial viability, and preoperative cardiac risk. Although its clinical safety has been validated, side effects and complications especially with the coadministration of atropine can occur. We report a case of generalized tetany in a 49-year-old woman undergoing dobutamine stress echocardiography.
