Abstract
Propofol has become a popular intravenous agent for the induction and maintenance of total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA). However, the pro- or anticonvulsant properties of propofol remain controversial and abnormal muscle movement and convulsive activity are possible side-effects. We report a case in which a healthy 42-year-old man developed myoclonic and tonic-clonic seizures related to the use of propofol for sedation during a brachial plexus block.
