Anorectal abscess, an infection in the anal area is a potentially debilitating and painful condition requiring urgent drainage to prevent septicemia. Commonly performed under neuraxial anaesthesia, we report surgical drainage of bilateral ischiorectal abscess under bilateral pudendal nerve blocks and general anaesthesia in a patient with severe ischaemic heart disease. Through our case we add to the existing literature, the importance of administrating peripheral nerve block in highly co-morbid patients.
Keywords: Anorectal abscess, Bilateral pudendal block, Severe ischaemic heart disease.
