Systemic sclerosis is a multisystemic disorder of unknown etiology characterized by fibrosis of skin, blood vessel, and visceral organ. A 38-week pregnant, 29 year-old woman with systemic sclerosis and migraine was scheduled for cesarean section under lumbar epidural anesthesia because of dyspnea, decreased diffusion lung capacity and Raynaud's phenomenon. She suffered from sudden onset of severe headache, repetitive nausea, vomiting, and hypertension during cesarean section under the epidural anesthesia. The above symptoms did not respond to beta-blocker, vasodilator during the operation period. In the recovery room, the headache and vomiting were relieved by intravenous injection of ketorolac and metoclopramide. She experienced single tonic-clonic generalized seizure and intermittent migraine after operation in the ward, and discharged 7 days after operation.
