Prune Belly syndrome (PBS) is a triad of absence of abdominal muscles, urinary tract malformations, and undescended testes. Due to partial or complete lack of abdominal muscles and flat diaphragm, there could be difficulty in breathing and effective coughing. It can also be associated with chest wall deformities which can cause increased incidence of respiratory infections and lead to complications in the peri and postoperative period. Here, we have discussed about the anesthetic challenges in 1-month-old baby diagnosed with PBS who was posted for cystoscopy.
