Anaesthetic management of paramyotonia congenita (PC) or “paradoxical myotonia” pose perioperative challenges to the anaesthesiologists both in obstetric and non-obstetric surgical patients. There are only a few case reports on the anaesthetic management especially in the obstetric population. Therefore, we aimed to present management of labour analgesia and emergency caesarean delivery in a 26-year-old parturient with PC.

Keywords: Myotonia, Paramyotonia congenita Labour analgesia, Spinal anaesthesia, caesarean delivery
