Abstract
Malignant hyperthermia is a recently described syndrome with rapid progress and extreme rise in body temperature of unknown etiology and high mortality rate. A case is presented of a 16 year old healthy male patient in whom a minor orthopedic operation was performed under O2-N2O-halothane anesthesia with induction by pentothal sodium and succiny- lcholine. This was complicated by an abrupt high rise of body temperature and rigid extremities when the operation was almost completed. He died 3 hours after cessation of anesthesia without any effective response to active fever therapy. The clinical features and management of malignant hyperthernia are described and possible etiologic factors are discussed.
