Myoclonic movements under anaesthesia are a less recognized phenomenon. We report here a case of 24-year old man who underwent varicose vein stripping and ligation procedure under spinal anaesthesia and developed spinal myoclonus.The movements gradually decreased in frequency and finally disappeared on the third postoperative day. The case warrants awareness about its occurrence, and anaesthetists must watch out for and recognize it.
