General anaesthesia (GA) is considered the choice of anaesthesia for patients presenting with intracranial tumours. In pregnant patients, spinal anaesthesia is preferred compared to GA for caesarean section.However, dilemma arises when an obese parturient presents with intracranial tumour with a history suggestive of intracranial hypertension, which favours the use of GA for caesarean section with its associated potential problems.Ultrasonographic optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) measurement has been used to delineate the presence of intracranial hypertension. ONSD more than 5 mm is considered to be indicator of the presence of intracranial hypertension.We are describing the usage of ultrasonographic ONSD measurement in guiding the choice of anaesthesia in an overweight parturient with intracranial tumour...
