Abstract

A previously healthy woman (20 years old) was admitted to our hospital with several fractures after a car accident. She was sedated with propofol, etc. in doses ranging from 1.4 to 5.1 mg/kg/h for 88 h. She developed multiple organ failure with rhabdomyolysis and died. This case fulfils (except acidosis) the criteria of propofol-infusion syndrome (PRIS) in a young adult.
