Leigh's disease, also known as Subacute Necrotizing Encephalomyelopathy, is an inherited myopathy causing degradation of motor skills with occasional cardiac involvement. Anesthesia experience for this disease has been rarely reported. Anesthetic can be safely preformed on a patient with Leigh's disease in ambulatory setting. Extreme caution is required if the patient presents with cardiomyopathy manifestations of the syndrome.
