Anesthetic Implications in Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome

Samir M. Patel, Mumin Hakim, Senthil G. Krishna, Joseph D. Tobias

Abstract


Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome (RTS), also known as broad thumb-hallux syndrome or Rubinstein syndrome, is an autosomal dominant condition characterized by short stature, moderate to severe learning difficulties, distinctive facial features, and broad thumbs and first toes. Given the associated anatomical features of the disorder, anesthetic care may be required during surgical procedures to correct the end-organ effects of the disorder. We present a 5-year-old boy with RTS that required anesthetic care for an adenotonsillectomy. Previous reports of anesthetic care for patients with RTS are reviewed and the perioperative considerations of these patients are discussed.
