A 76 year old patient underwent a laparoscopic rectal resection performed under thoracic epidural anaesthesia and general anaesthesia. He was inadvertently given 1 g of paracetamol epidural and reported a position-independent holocephalic headache one day later. A severe nausea and vomiting lead to a gastrointestinal bleeding. The last neurological examination after 3 months revealed no nausea, no headaches and no sensory disturbances.
