Freeman-Sheldon (whistling face) syndrome with hyperpyrexia in the newborn: case report.
Genet Couns. 2010; 21(3):347-51.GC

Abstract

Freeman Sheldon syndrome (FSS) is a rare, multiple congenital contracture syndrome that is relatively well-known, since affected children have a striking appearance. This entity was historically referred to as the "whistling-face syndrome". Malignant hyperthermia and hyperpyrexia have been documented in FSS after general anesthesia related to the neuropathy. We report a male neonate with FSS and hyperpyrexia without anesthesia. To our knowledge, our patient is the first in the literature with hyperpyrexia in the newborn period without anesthesia.
