Abstract

Antley-Bixler Syndrome (ABS) is an autosomal recessive trait disorder characterized by multiple bone and cartilaginous abnormalities. Primary features include significant craniosynostosis, midface hypoplasia with choanal stenosis or atresia, femoral bowing, radiohumeral synostosis, and multiple joint contractures. Cardiac, renal, and gastrointestinal malformations have also been described. This report describes the management of a four-month-old male who underwent cranial vault remodeling to relieve craniosynostosis and discusses the potential concerns of the anaesthetist during care of children with Antley-Bixler Syndrome.
