Abstract:

Autonomic-dysfunction refers to problems of the autonomic nervous system. Hypokalemicperiodic- paralysis results in episodes of muscle weakness and low blood potassium levels. Mastcell- activation-syndrome is defined by the abnormal growth and accumulation of mast cells. Few clinical cases are found in the literature on the anesthetic management of each of these disorders, and there are no reported cases of adults with all three conditions undergoing surgery under general anesthesia. We report the case of a 36-year-old male with autonomic-dysfunction, hypokalemicperiodic- paralysis and mast-cell-activation-syndrome who safely underwent general anesthesia for bimaxillary orthognathic surgery.
