Spinal myoclonus developed after regional anesthesia is quite rare. They are sudden onset, involuntary, short focal or segmental contractions in a single muscle or a muscle group. Spinal myoclonus is a neuromuscular dysfunction developed after spinal cord pathologies (tumor, infection,etc.) Almost all reported cases were related to intrathecal bupivacaine or an epidural catheter. We aimed to present the spinal myoclonus we observed in our case caused by the administration of bupivacaine for spinal anesthesia.
