Hoarseness of voice following supraclavicular brachial plexus block is a rare complication and is seen in 1.3% of cases. It has been reported in cases of right supraclavicular brachial block exclusively. The reason for this is the course of recurrent laryngeal nerve which is not the same in the left and right sides. Here we report a case of left supraclavicular brachial plexus block following which the patient developed hoarseness of voice.
