Intravascular epidural catheters may result in insufficient labour analgesia or can produce potentially lethal complications following an epidural top-up. We report a case of a previously well functioning epidural catheter positioned epidurally using a combined spinal epidural anaesthesia technique, which subsequently was found to be intravascular. The literature is reviewed.
