Walker Warburg Syndrome is extremely rare autosomal recessive disorder with a reported incidence of 1.2 per 100,000 live births. Typical findings include hydrocephalus, type II cobblestone lissencephaly, cerebellar malformation, retinal dysplasia and muscular dystrophy. We report the anaesthetic management of a 21 days old child with Walker Warburg Syndrome for ventriculo-peritoneal shunt insertion under general anaesthesia.
