Anesthetic management of a patient with Freeman-Sheldon syndrome: case report

J Clin Anesth. 2007 Sep;19(6):460-2. doi: 10.1016/j.jclinane.2006.10.016.


The Freeman-Sheldon syndrome (FSS) is a rare congenital myopathy and dysplasia. The musculoskeletal and soft-tissue manifestations of FSS often require orthopedic and plastic reconstructive surgery. We report a case of a 7-year-old girl with FSS operated for lower limb malformation during spinal anesthesia.
