Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), when infected causes various systemic changes and is the cause of the fatal disease called acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). With the sharp increase of infection in women, pregnancy can be complicated by HIV infection. Although there have been astonishing developments in therapy there are still many risks in the pregnant HIV patients. The anesthetic management will depend on the patients clinical status, current treatment as well as the well-being of the fetus. We report a case of spinal anesthesia in a 36-year-old pregnant HIV patient undergoing cesarean section.
