Abstract

Neurologic conditions without prenatal optimization can pose anesthetic and obstetrical challenges. We present a case of Currarino syndrome; an autosomal dominant triad of agenesis of the sacrum, anterior sacral meningocele (ASM) with sacral teratomas, and anorectal stenosis; diagnosed during pregnancy; and the subsequent anesthetic considerations. The location, size, and risk of rupture of the ASM can create obstacles to delivery. Eligibility for neuraxial anesthesia should be made on a case-by-case basis with risk-benefit analysis, and deficits should be documented allowing prompt identification and intervention should complications arise. Multidisciplinary team coordination is vital to help facilitate maternal safety.
