We describe a case of 55-year-old female who had deterioration of respiratory and haemodynamic status after hysterectomy under subarachnoid block. On the second postoperative day she had to be intubated and sustained on ventilatory and inotropic support. The patient had apparently no previous cardio-respiratory-renal or neurological problem. Her CT scan revealed a space occupying intracranial lesion. The etiopathogensis and future management of such patients is discussed after review of current literature.
