Compartment syndrome caused by an infiltrated intravenous catheter has been previously reported, but there are no reports of compartment syndrome caused by fluids and/or medications dispensed by a properly functioning drug infusion pump. A case in which a commonly used drug infusion pump delivered propofol and remifentanil under high pressure, leading to compartment syndrome, is presented.
