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.

Conclusions:

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