Abstract

 Propofol is a short-acting, lipophilic anesthetic. Intravenous propofol is the drug of choice for induction of anesthesia. Abnormal muscle movements, abnormal posturing and convulsions associated with the usage of propofol happen to be reported. The spinal cord plays an important role in modulating anesthetic-induced suppression of nociceptive transmission. Recent studies showed that propofol potentiates the inhibitory transmitter’s glycine and 3~-aminobutyric acid (GABA) which enhance spinal inhibition during anesthesia. In this case report a 40-year-old male had seizures shortly after receiving epidural steroid injection given under anesthesia induced by propofol and fentanyl. Serum prolactin levels were found to be elevated. CT brain, CT spine and MR imaging of the brain were negative for any suggestive findings of epilepsy.
