Pallister-Killian syndrome is characterized by tetrasomy of the short arm of chromosome 12p, which produces mental retardation of varying degrees and dysmorphic characteristics. We describe anaesthesia in a 2-year-old child affected by this syndrome who underwent surgery for orchidopexy. Anaesthetic consisted of an inhalation mixture of O2, N2O and sevoflurane, together with an inguinal block with ropivacaine and administration of alfentanil plus ketorolac. Tracheal intubation was uneventful. No complications of any type were observed.
