The authors report the case of a female patient (41 years old) affected by mucopolysaccharidosis type III or Sanfilippo syndrome submitted to a gynecologic surgical procedure and describe the main anesthesiologic problems. A sub-arachnoid anesthesia with hyperbaric Bupivacain 0.5% was used. This technique proved to be safe and convenient without peri- and postoperative complications.
