Hakan Erkal, Gülten Arslan, Yaman Özyurt, Özlem Yetişgen, Zuhal Arıkan.


Crouzon is a congenital syndrome described as one of the varieties of craniofacial dysostosis caused by premature obliteration and ossification
of two or more sutures, most often coronal and sagittal. Oxycephaly, scaphocephaly, wedge skull, and oblique head are prominent presentations. Pediatric patients with Crouzon’s syndrome frequently present for multiple ophthalmic surgeries requiring general endotracheal anesthesia. In our study we reported our anesthetic experience with the laryngeal mask airway in a 29 years-old female patient with Crouzon’s syndrome.
We used sevoşurane 1-8 % and fentanyl 1 mcg/kg to induce anesthesia, and maintained anesthesia with 40% nitrous oxide, oxygen, and sevoşorane 1-3 %. Both induction and maintenance were smooth. Emergence from anesthesia was also smooth

Key words: Crouzon’s syndrome, craniosynostosis, anesthesia, complication
