Sanjad-Sakati syndrome (SSS) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by congenital hypoparathyroidism, hypocalcemia and hyperphosphatemia, seizures, severe intrauterine and postnatal growth failure, dwarfism, mental retardation, dysmorphic features including retromicrognathia and abnormal dentition and increased susceptibility to infection. It is mainly confined to children in the Middle-East countries. We report the anesthesia management of a 12-year-old boy with SSS for dental treatment, and discuss the anesthesia implications of this disorder.
