The medical literature sometimes reports neurological complications after spinal or epidural anaesthesia. In a few cases, the onset of symptoms can be a sign of a pre-existing disease without a primary connection with regional anaesthesia. In the following case report, the patient complained of paraesthesias in both legs after a failed spinal anaesthesia, even though the needle had been placed intrathecally. Only neurological examination and nuclear magnetic resonance imaging revealed the presence of syringomyelia.
