Abstract

We report the case of a 30-year-old pregnant woman with an Arnold-Chiari malformation, who presented with severe pregnancy-induced hypertension at 30 weeks gestation. She was known to have had a difficult tracheal intubation during a previous general anaesthetic. Caesarean section was performed under an incremental epidural anaesthetic block.
