Anaesthetic considerations in an orphan disease with skeletal anomalies


The patient had frontal bossing, micrognathia, depressed nasal bridge, high‐arched palate, multiple impacted supernumerary teeth [Figure 1], barrel‐shaped chest, cup‐shaped distal phalanges and down‐curving nails. Mouth opening was adequate but Mallampati airway grade (MP) was indeterminate. Height (135 cm) was less than 3rd percentile and weight (30 kg) was 10th percentile for her age. She had mild intellectual developmental disability. Radiologically, hypoplastic clavicles and thickening of the occipital calvarium were observed [Figure 2]. Other systems and hormonal profile were within normal limits.
