Abstract: Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a rare genetically inherited disorder of connective tissue, resulting in anatomic and physiological abnormalities which pose unusual challenges for the anaesthesiologists during any form of anaesthesia. We present the anaesthetic management of a 48-year-old dwarf male with OI, who underwent craniotomy and excision of a skull-based meningioma SOL with midline shift at our institute. After a successful surgery under general anaesthesia, patient was shifted to ICU on mechanical ventilator for post-op care.
