AbstractOur patient presented to hospital in acute asthma exacerbation and foetal distress. Past history was remarkable for pregnancy at 35 weeks, morbid obesity, uncontrolled asthma, seizure disorder and known frontal glioma. Here we highlight the neuraxial management of this patient for cesarean section and discuss the central dogma of neuraxial technique in the face of known intracranial neoplasm.
