Abstract

A rhabdomyolytic attack in a 4 year old is presented. The child, a Duchenne-type muscular dystrophy patient was given a muscular biopsy under general anaesthesia using protoxide and halothane. The absence of rigidity and hyperthermia, a review of the literature and a retrospective study of the Neurology Institute's case series (106 general anaesthesias using protoxide and halothane in patients with progressive or congenital muscular dystrophy) indicated two alternative hypotheses. The first hypothesised a diagnosis of rhabdomyolysis unrelated to malignant hyperthermia. The second less probable hypothesis was rhabdomyolysis in association with an aborted form of malignant hyperthermia.
