Abstract

Malignant hyperthermia is a rare life threatening pharmacological disorder. Preoperative clinical diagnosis is not possible. Due to its rarity and severity, it must be taken as an important differential diagnosis for postoperative hyperthermia. We hereby report a case of postoperative malignant hyperthermia in a four-year-old female child, who was operated for type 1 choledochal cyst and had difficult postoperative sequel. We lost that child due to unavailability of Dantrolene sodium in emergency drug cart.
