Anesthesia management of pediatric dentistry patients with cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome: a case report.

Journal: Brazilian Journal Of Anesthesiology (Elsevier)

Cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome is a rare syndrome characterized by particular craniofacial features, cardiac abnormalities, and multiple organ diseases. Patients present with pulmonary stenosis, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, short neck, micrognathia, laryngomalacia, and tracheomalacia. These conditions may strongly influence patient perioperative outcomes. We describe a 15-year-old child with cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome presenting for a dentistry procedure. She had an uneventful perioperative and postoperative course except for difficult airway management.
