Previously, Fahr’s syndrome diagnosed 21 year-old male patient, consulted to urology outpatient clinic suffering from left scrotal pain. Physical examinations and Doppler tests results indicated left grade III varicocele. Left subinguinal varicocelectomy was performed safely under spinal anesthesia. This is the first and unique case showing co-existence of Fahr’s syndrome and varicocele and also the first spinal anesthesia procedure in a Fahr’s syndrome patient. In this report we tried to show that varicocelectomy can be performed under spinal anesthesia safely on Fahr’s syndrome patients.
