A 3-year-old Thai boy underwent open reduction and internal fixation with K-wire of condylar fracture of humerus under general anesthesia. The patients developed generalized muscle regidity, masseter muscle spasm, elevated creatinine kinase, high temperature (39.3 C), inappropriate tachycardia, and arterial base excess was more than-8 mEq/L. The clinical(More)
