A 71-year-old man was admitted to the emergency room after high-energy trauma. He suddenly deteriorated several hours after an epidural providing local anaesthetics. At that time, his blood was black and the methaemoglobin level was 69 percent. After administration of methylene blue, he made a full clinical and biochemical recovery.
