Abstract


    Severe neurological deficit following spinal anesthesia is an uncommon incident. Here we report a 24-year-old female who was given spinal anesthesia for lower segment caesarean section developed transient severe pain at the site of needle insertion radiating to right lower limb during the procedure followed by weakness predominantly involving the right lower limb and areflexia. Her magnetic resonance imaging of spine revealed signal intensity alteration in the spinal cord from 5th thoracic segment to the conus suggestive of extensive myelitis along with involvement of nerve roots following the procedure.
