1/1. Freeman-Sheldon (whistling face) syndrome. Anaesthetic and airway management.

    We describe the anaesthetic management of Freeman-Sheldon syndrome in a two-and-a-half year old undergoing club foot correction. Following an inhalational induction using halothane, tracheal intubation by direct laryngoscopy proved impossible. A laryngeal mask airway was inserted and intubation with a 4.5 tracheal tube was successfully achieved using a fibreoptic bronchoscope passed through the LMA. The child had an uneventful anaesthetic course. A caudal epidural was used for postoperative analgesia and the child was discharged home on day two. The anaesthetic and airway management options of this syndrome are outlined.
