'Speechless' patient after general anaesthesia may be a real horror for the anaesthetist as well as the patient and his relatives. Whatever the cause "functional or organic" the anaesthetist will be under pressure as his patient is not able to talk. Here we report a 40 years old patient who has no history of medical problems and developed aphemia after general anaesthesia for emergency caesarean section with an uneventful intra-operative course. Clinical examinations and investigations failed to reveal any clear cause and the patient returned her ability to talk and discharged home with normal voice.
