Polyneuropathy that characterized by diffuse axonal degeneration or multifocal segmental demyelination is neuropathy and usually influence peripheral nerves. It can lead to respiratory failure with muscle weakness, atrophy, fasciculations, the involvement of the respiratory muscles. Increased risk of malignant hyperthermia, potential airway problems that may develop after extubation with effected the respiratory muscles, prolonged duration of recovery from non-depolarizing neuromuscular blockade, the discussion of the used neuraxial anesthesia makes anesthesia management important in patient with polyneuropathy. In this presentation aimed to provide general anesthesia management without neuromuscular blockade a patient with motor-sensory polyneuropathy mainly demyelinating who underwent posterior instrumentation due to scoliosis.
