Abstract
Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita (SEDC) is a kind of skeletal dysplasia, inheritable condition. The clinical features of SEDC are dwarfism, myopia with or without retinal detachment, coxa vara, thoracic dysplasia with respiratory failure and laryngotracheal stenosis. A point of particular concern to anesthetists is odontoid hypoplasia which, combined with ligamentous laxity, leads to atlantoaxial instability. We report successful general anesthesia for cervical spine fusion of a patient with SEDC.
Key Words: Atlantoaxial instability, Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita
