Abstract
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic, potentially fatal auto-immune disease characterized by unpredictable exacerbations and remissions of clinical manifestations. It is common in women of child-bearing age. The relationship between SLE and pregnancy is in both ways, one effecting the other. So the anesthetic management will depend on the patients clinical status as well as the well-being of the fetus. We report a case of epidural anesthesia in a 29-year-old pregnant SLE patient undergoing cesarean section.
Key Words: anesthetic, management, epidural, anesthesia, pregnancy, systemic, lupus
