Abstract

For an exact evaluation of the risks of operations it is necessary to assess both co-existing and concomitant diseases before the performance of anaesthesia. The relatively low incidence of neurological and muscular diseases (0.02 to 0.7/1,000) and the low probability of an operation of a patient suffering from these diseases lead to higher anaesthesiological risks during the operation and the perioperative period. The anaesthetist is usually not always aware of all the special pathophysiological problems which have to be taken into consideration when these patients have to be anaesthetized. In order to reduce the risk of anaesthesia of these patients, we discuss the most important of these uncommon neurological diseases regarding their special anaesthesiological management.
