ABSTRACT :
Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a rare autosomal recessive disease, which is characterized by hypersensitivity of the skin to ultraviolet (UV) radiation and progressive neurological complications. Inhalational anesthetic agents are avoided due to the possibility of inducing DNA damage and minimum use of muscle relaxants is done intraoperatively. These patients may have a potential difficult airway. We report a 6 years old male child who was a known case of xeroderma pigmentosa scheduled for a dental extraction under general anesthesia. The uneventful course of anesthesia in this case was due to a thorough systemic evaluation and careful anesthetic plan.

CASE :

A 6 years, 15 kg male child was referred to our institute for dental extraction under general anesthesia. Child was a known case of XP but was not on any medication (Figure 1).....
