Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS) is a relatively uncommon, multiple malformation syndrome involving neurodevelopmental, craniofacial, cardiac, musculoskeletal and gastrointestinal systems. Anesthetic management of a patient with CdLS may pose a serious problem mainly from difficult tracheal intubation, aspiration complications and cardiac malformation. We report our successful experience in anesthetic management of a 15-month-old male patient with CdLS who underwent orchiopexy for bilateral cryptochidism.
Key Words: aspiration complications; cardiac malformation; Cornelia de Lange syndrome; difficult tracheal intubation
