|The study aims to identify those children with ptosis and who are the candidates for ophthalmic surgery; who might harbor RYR1 mutations, because intraoperative malignant hyperthermia is potentially lethal. We report for the first time congenital ptosis as the only ophthalmic findings in 2 siblings with scoliosis and underlying recessive RYR1 mutations. Malignant hyperthermia susceptibility is a rare pharmacogenic disorder of skeletal muscle calcium regulation caused by mutations in the skeletal muscle ryanodine receptor 1 (RYR1) gene. It is important to identify those children who are candidates for ophthalmic surgery, who might harbor RYR1 mutations.|
