The first Lewis-base-catalyzed unexpected [1 + 2 + 2] annulation reaction between Morita–Baylis–Hillman carbonates and unsaturated pyrazolones was developed. The multicyclic cyclopentane-fused dispiropyrazolone constructions containing five contiguous stereogenic centers, including two spiro quaternary centers, were prepared with excellent yields (81–98%) and moderate to good diastereoselectivities (1:1 to 13:1). Further transformation and gram-scale operations were also achieved efficiently.
