Abstract

Hunter's syndrome is due to recessively inherited mucopolysaccharide storage diseases. The anaesthetic complications in this syndrome are related to the organs involved in the disease, but pertain especially to upper airway obstruction problems. We report a patient with Hunter's syndrome who, while under general anaesthesia for a simple procedure (the introduction of bilateral grommets), suffered a fatal outcome.
