Abstract
Lowe syndrome is a rare genetic condition that involves three major organs: eyes, brain, and kidney. Anesthetic management can be challenged by problems associated with high ocular pressure, mental retardation, and renal tubular dysfunction. We report a case of a 17 year-old boy with Lowe syndrome accompanied by end-stage renal disease who underwent general anesthesia for arteriovenous fistula formation. The Anesthetic implications of this syndrome are also described.
Key Words: Anesthesia, End-stage renal disease, Lowe syndrome
