6p25 Deletion and Anesthetic Implications During Growing Rod Insertion for Early Onset Scoliosis

Hina Walia, Mumin Hakim, Emmett Whitaker, Walter Samora, Jan E. Klamar, Joseph D. Tobias


6p25 is a rare yet clinically identifiable disorder that results from the deletion of the short arm of chromosome 6. Due to the craniofacial, central nervous system, renal, cardiac, and skeletal abnormalities, anesthetic care may be required during various surgical interventions. The associated structural anomalies and end-organ involvement may impact the perioperative care. We present a 4-year-old girl with subtelomeric 6p25 deletion who required anesthetic care during placement of growing rods to treat progressive scoliosis. A review of literature was performed, the end-organ involvement was discussed, and options for anesthetic care were presented.
