We present a 4-years-old Russell-Silver syndrome patient who underwent surgical correction of left auricular abnormality. He had a triangular face with hypoplastic mandible. Because of facial manifestations of this syndrome, the anesthesiologist should prepare for a difficult endotracheal intubation and mask fitting. These patients may be prone especially to hypoglycemia and hypothermia during intraoperative period, therefore close monitoring and appropriate care for hypoglycemia and hypothermia is required. In this case, gentle direct laryngoscopy was performed to assess the airway. Hypoglycemia and hypothermia was not observed. We discuss anesthetic considerations in management.
Key Words: anesthesia, intubation, pediatric, Russell-Silver syndrome
