Abstract

Despite challenges and controversies in choice of anaesthesia technique in caesarean delivery of paraplegic parturients, monitored anesthesia care (MAC) was presented as a unique anaesthetic approach for a term primigravida with idiopathic transverse myelitis. However, a 29‐year‐old paraplegic woman suffering from Devic's Syndrome associated with transverse myelitis scheduled for emergency CS due to fetal distress under epidural anaesthesia was overlooked.
