Abstract

Two cases of anaesthesia-induced malignant hyperthermia are reported. One patient died; the other, a 29-years-old woman, recovered without ascertainable after-effects although high temperature persisted for a relatively long time. Suggestions for the early diagnosis of malignant hyperthermia are analysed and the problem of procaine dosage is briefly discussed.
