Abstract
Kennedy's disease is an adult onset form of motor neuron disease characterized by progressive proximal and bulbar muscle weakness. The authors report the anaesthetic management of a 43-year-old man with Kennedy's disease who underwent elective orthopaedic surgery under spinal anaesthesia. The anaesthetic implications of this X-linked lower motor neuron disorder are discussed, and guidelines for safe anaesthetic management are suggested.
