Bronisław Sowa
Shoulder dislocation is a rare skeletal trauma in childhood and progeria is a rare disease. Our patient had bilateral shoulder dislocation associated with a low energy trauma. Treatment consisted in reposition under general anaesthesia and immmobilisation in a figure of eight cast for 2 weeks.

Hutchinson-Gildford syndrome is an extremely rare condition characterized by the appearance of accelerated ageing. Reports of general anaesthesia in a child with progeria within the last 20 years in the English-spoken literature are very rare. We report a case of general anaesthesia in a 12-year-old boy with this condition. The child had a past history of failed intubation. Key points in the management of anaesthesia in progeria are discussed.
