A patient is presented who obtained only an L1 sensory block, which was inadequate for her procedure, from continuous spinal anaesthesia despite appropriate doses of 0.5% plain bupivacaine. She then developed a high spinal block after an epidural was sited and a test dose given in the sitting position. The possible mechanisms for this are discussed.
