Abstract

Hyperbaric 5% lidocaine has been used extensively for spinal anesthesia for the last 50 yr. The implication of lidocaine as specifically etiologic for transient neurologic symptoms (TNS) has led to increasing focus on lidocaine spinal anesthesia and reports of TNS with single-shot, hyperbaric lidocaine. We report the details of a case of TNS associated with single-shot, isobaric 2% lidocaine in a 69-year-old female, scheduled for outpatient hysteroscopy, dilatation and curettage, and endometrial biopsy while placed in the lithotomy position.
