Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS) is described as a congenital disease characterized by delayed growth, mental-motor retardation, typical face appearance, thick eyebrows meeting at the midline, micrognathia, thin lips, micromelia, dental problems, and malformations in the systems such as cardiac, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and musculoskeletal systems. It is rarely seen, with a reported incidence of 1 in 10,000 to 40,000. It is generally sporadic, but can also be dominant and recessive (1). Problems such as difficult intubation, gastroesophageal reflux, aspiration, and hyperthermia make the airway safety more difficult in general anesthesia practices (2). We aimed to present our anesthesia management experience with a patient having CdLS who was operated because of undescended testis and circumcision after taking the consent of his family.
