(J Clin Anesth. 2016;34:392–394)

Arising from the central nervous system, myoclonus is a sudden, brief, involuntary shock-like muscle contraction. Research has shown that spinal myoclonus following neuraxial anesthesia is rare. This article reported on a case of myoclonus-like involuntary movement that occurred during recovery from epidural anesthesia administered for a cesarean delivery.
