Abstract

Neurological complications during neuraxial anaesthesia are rare but if they occur, the consequences are disastrous. In most cases, it is difficult to identify the exact aetiology. For a good recovery, early diagnosis and intervention should be ensured. We report a case of foot drop following possible needle trauma in a patient who underwent total abdominal hysterectomy under combined spinal-epidural technique.
