Weaver syndrome is a rare disorder of unknown etiology characterized by skeletal overgrowth, distinctive craniofacial and digital abnormalities and advanced bone age. In general, craniofacial abnormalities that cause difficulty with tracheal intubation may improve, worsen, or remain unchanged as craniofacial structures mature. Furthermore, there is an estimated risk in these children of ≤1.09% of rhabdomyolysis or malignant hyperpyrexia. We report a case of a boy with Weaver syndrome who underwent emergency evacuation of extra-dural hematoma under general anesthesia.
