Aim and Background:

Becker’s muscular dystrophy (BMD) is similar to the Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy, but the clinical course is milder.We introduced a patient with Becker Muscle Dystrophy who candidate for emergency cesarean section.

Case report:

A36-year-old woman, gestational age 31 weeks, with a history of Becker Muscle Dystrophy and fetal distress who candidate for emergency cesarean section. Spinal anesthesia was performed with bupivacaine 12 mg. During operation non-invasive ventilation with CPAP = 10cmH2O was started due to reduced arterial oxygen saturation. Blood pressure and heart rate did not significantly change during the surgery and recovery.


We recommend spinal anesthesia with bupivacaine for cesarean section in a patient with Becker muscular dystrophy.
