The anaesthetic care of these patients should take into consideration respiratory, craniofacial, cardiac, skeletal, ocular and hepatic abnormalities. We report the case of a child with Morquio's syndrome who presented for stabilization of the cervical spine, and discuss the issues relevant to the anaesthesiologist.
