In this report a patient who had an uneventful intraoperative and postopeative course following the first exposure to succinylcholine but, during a subsequent procedure, developed prolonged respiratory dysfunction following a second exposure to succinylcholine is described. This patient was subsequently found to have an extremely low level of pseudocholinesterase.
