Abstract

Introduction: Microcephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism (or Taybi-Linder syndrome) is a rare disease characterized by bone and central nervous system malformations, in addition to intrauterine retardation.

Case presentation: 20-year-old patient operated on for adhesiolysis and enteropexy due to bowel obstruction from post surgical adhesions.

Conclusion: The anesthetic considerations in these patients include the potential airway impairment secondary to facial malformations and neurological complications, primarily seizures.
