A variety of neurologic conditions may influence the selection and conduction of anesthesia. The pharmacodynamics of many anesthetics are often directly altered by neurologic disorders. Most anesthetic agents are reversibly neurotoxic, and thus monitoring the recovery of neurologic function after anesthesia becomes complicated. In addition, many neurologic disorders are rare resulting in limited anesthetic reports in the literature. The combination of these factors requires maximum caution in planning the administration of anesthesia.
