Spinal anesthesia is the preferred technique of administering anesthesia for elective cesarean section (CS). Hypotension, failed spinal anesthesia, postdural-puncture headache, cauda equina syndrome are a few complications that may occur but neurological complications particularly aphonia are quite rare. The use of lipophilic opioids as adjuvants with local anesthetics are considered as culprit but the exact mechanism remains unidentified. We report such presentation in our patient and discuss the likely cause.
