Abstract

The congenital central alveolar hypoventilation syndrome (Undine's syndrome, or Ondine's curse) is a rare disorder of central ventilation. In recent years a successful therapy has been found consisting of pacing of the diaphragm. Early diagnosis is therefore significant for preoperative management. In our paper, we present the clinical course of a female newborn with Ondine's curse. Conclusions for the further management by the paediatric staff are demonstrated.
