Abstract

Inclusion-cell disease (mucolipidosis II/I-cell disease) is a lysosomal storage disease characterized by a constellation of physical findings which complicate airway management. There is currently a deficit of published literature describing appropriate strategies for acute management of these children's airways. This paper details emergency and anesthetic airway management concerns and potential solutions in a small series of children with I-cell disease. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
