Central core disease is a rare neuromuscular disorder associated with leg weakness. It is a familial disease with autosomal dominant inheritance. Central core disease has been reported to be associated with malignant hyperthermia. A 25-year-old woman with central core disease was scheduled to be operated for lumbar disc hernia at L4-5 and L5-S1 interspaces. Oral dantrolene was administered prophylactically. Spinal anesthesia was performed with a 25 G Whitacre spinal needle at the L3-4 interspace. No complication was observed during the intraoperative and postoperative periods. We present a case with central core disease who was operated under spinal anesthesia with oral prophylactic dantrolene.
