Abstract
Crow–Fukase syndrome is a multisystem disorder with anaesthetic risks including prolonged duration of action of neuromuscular blocking drugs. The case of a patient with this syndrome who underwent six separate elective procedures and one urgent surgical procedure is reported. Avoidance of neuromuscular blocking drugs and use of regional anaesthetic techniques are recommended.
