Crouzon Syndrome: a fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 gene mutation
Journal of Cellular & Molecular Anesthesia,
Vol. 2 No. 1 (2017),
Crouzon syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant premature cranyosynostosis, caused by fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 gene mutation on chromosome 10. The predominant skull and facial malformations with potential compromise airway make the crouzon syndrome a demanding issue for anesthesiologists and surgeons, required dynamic team work. In this report we describe a child, a known case of Crouzon syndrome who was a candidate for optic nerve decompression through endoscopic surgery. The anesthetic considerations and management are presented.
Key words: Crouzon Syndrome, FGFR2 gene, Difficult Intubation, Anesthesia
- Crouzon Syndrome
- FGFR2 gene
- Difficult Intubation
