After sedation with propofol a young man developed milky-white urine. Urinalysis showed a high concentration of uric acid crystals as being responsible. This phenomenon appears to be dose-dependent and is explained in this report. Since it is harmless and self-limiting no extensive analysis is needed when observed.
