The authors report two cases of arare post-spinal complication which were hypertension, tachycardia, hyperpyrexia and localized clonic convulsion of the back and lower extremities. Spinal anesthesia was performed with Tetocaine(Tetracaine made in Japan) and 10% dextrose ampule (made by Dongindang, Korea) and by multiple heat sterilization. One recovered well in 14 days with intensive care and medication, and was discharged in one month without any sequelate. The other died 3 hours following spinal anesthesia. We consider the probable causes of the complication as contamination the spinal anesthetic, 10% dextrose and spinal tray, OR deterioration of the spinal anesthetic or the 10% dextrose due to multiple heat sterilization.
