AbstractApert syndrome is a rare congenial anomaly with multisystem involvement. It is characterized by craniosynostosis, midfacial hypoplasia and global syndactyly. Altered upper and lower airway anatomy, multiple visceral anomalies and multiple repeat surgeries are main anaesthetic challenges. Here we report a case of seven month old child with Apert syndrome who was posted for posterior sagittal anorectoplasty.
