Anesthesia for a Patient With Aicardi-Goutières Syndrome: A First Case Report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We present a case of a child with Aicardi-Goutières Syndrome (AGS) undergoing general anesthesia for placement of a laparoscopic gastrostomy tube. AGS is a rare genetic leukodystrophy that can affect most organ systems with extensive neurologic effects. These changes potentially have great anesthetic implications. We describe our anesthetic management and discuss these implications. The patient had a prolonged duration of action of rocuronium and an otherwise uneventful anesthetic course.
