SUMMARY: Following a propofol anesthetic, a 5-year-old girl with lower extremity spasticity seized and developed hypertriglyceridemia, hyperkalemia, and metabolic acidosis. A presumed diagnosis of propofol infusion syndrome (PRIS) was made, but further investigation revealed neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy. PRIS should be considered with this constellation of symptoms, but other neurometabolic disorders must always be ruled out.
