ANAESTHESIA IMPLICATIONS IN CORPUS CALLOSAL AGENESIS
*Rochana G. Bakhshi
Agenesis of corpus callosum is characterized by partial or complete absence of interhemispheric fibres connecting the two cerebral hemispheres. It may be inherited as an autosomal recessive trait or an X linked dominant trait. This condition has varied symptoms such as epileptic seizures, feeding problems, delayed developmental milestones, visual and auditory impairment, posterior urethral valves, etc. Anaesthesia given to such patients has its own challenges. We present a case of corpus callosal agenesis with posterior urethral valves. Patient underwent initial fulguration and later a bilateral ureteric implantation under general anaesthesia. A brief case report and anesthetic implications are presented along with review of literature.
Keywords: Anesthesia, corpus callosal agenesis, ureteral implantation.
