Spinal deformities may cause difficulties with both tracheal intubation and regional anesthesia. This report describes the anesthetic management that was performed in 48 years old patient with extremely severe thoracolumbar kyphoscoliosis and mallampati class IV. After examining the risk factors, spinal block by injecting single dose 12,5 mg bupivacaine solution to the intratechal space was chosen to provide anaesthesia. Motor and sensory blockade at the level of Th12 was achieved.
