Dr. P. Veena, Dr. Mariam Joan Varghese
Abstract: Von Recklinghausen disease is an autosominal dominant disease with a wide spectrum of multisystem involvement. Neurofibromas are the characteristic lesions associated with important anaesthetic considerations, mainly when neurofibromas occur in the oropharynx and larynx, leading to difficult laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation. We describe the anaesthetic management of a patient with NF1 under general anaesthesia for Total abdominal hysterectomy.
