Abstract

Morquio syndrome, a congenital mucopolysaccharidosis, presents several challenges for the provision of effective labor analgesia. We report the case of a woman admitted for induction of labor who received an early epidural and subsequently required cesarean delivery. Optimal bilateral labor analgesia was not achieved despite multiple adjustments, and systemic analgesia was needed for cesarean delivery.
