Anesthetic Considerations for a Child With Rare : A Case ReportB3GALT6: A Case Report Mutations: A Case Report
A rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the B3GALT6 gene on chromosome 1p36 results in deficiency of β-1,3-galactosyltransferase 6, an enzyme critical for glycosaminoglycan biosynthesis. Defects in this gene result in a phenotype that has features of both skeletal dysplasia and a connective tissue disorder. The anesthetic considerations for children with this disorder have not previously been described. We report a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to the perioperative care of a child with B3GALT6 mutations with severe phenotypic expression.
