Airway Management in a Pediatric Patient with Xeroderma Pigmentosum: A Case Report

Abstract


Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a rare genetic disorder with a recessive autosomal inheritance. It seems that total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) is more appropriate than inhalational anesthesia as a method for maintenance of general anesthesia for xeroderma pigmentosum patients and the airway manipulation must be performed as little and noninvasive as possible. The aim of this report was to evaluate the specific considerations for airway management and anaesthesia in these patients.

Keywords: Xeroderma pigmentosum; Airway management; Pediatric; Anesthesia; Total intravenous anesthesia
