          Abstract

          We successfully anesthetized a 14-year-old boy with myotonic dystrophy for orthopedic surgery using sevoflurane. Sevoflurane enabled anesthetic induction and tracheal intubation without intravenous anesthetics and muscle relaxants. Sevoflurane also provided stable anesthetic maintenance without intravenous anesthetics. The patient showed rapid anesthetic recovery and adequate spontaneous breathing. We conclude that sevoflurane is a useful anesthetic for patients with myotonic dystrophy.
