We present the anaesthetic management of a parturient with myogenic differentiation-1 gene-related congenital myopathy who presented for urgent caesarean section due to pre-eclampsia and respiratory failure. The challenges we faced include chronic respiratory failure with diaphragmatic dysfunction, difficulties with neuraxial anaesthesia, potential risk of triggering malignant hyperthermia in an unknown myopathy, and the complexities of multidisciplinary team involvement. As there is limited medical literature regarding this condition, we believe this is the first case report describing the anaesthetic care of a pregnant patient with this rare congenital myopathy.
