Severe neuropathic pain in postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) is challenging for physicians especially in patients with altered hemostasis. Several interventional techniques have been described in the literature to treat this refractory pain. We report the successful management of PHN with thoracic erector spinae plane block in a patient on anticoagulants.
