      <Abstract>Methemoglobin is a form of haemoglobin containing iron in ferric state (Fe3+), which reduces oxygen delivery to tissues. Causes can be hereditary or secondary  to certain drugs and toxins. It presents with cyanosis and breathlessness. Methylene blue is used for treatment. Majority of literature available has reported levels up to 33%. We came across a case of severe methehemoglobinemia (40.2%) that occurred in a full term pregnant female during labour. We got access to only one supporting literature of methemoglobinemia during labour. Hence, this is an unusual case of severe methemoglobinemia during labour.</Abstract>
