A Case of Anesthetic Treatment of Appendicectomy to a Patient under Potato Poisoning (Short Report)


We reported a case of anesthetic treatment of appendicectomy to a patient under potato poisoning. The overview of potato poisoning has been reviewed in the report and the symptom of the patient under potato poisoning comparing with other appendicitis patients has been described. We highlighted the deference of methodology of anesthetic treatment comparing the patient under potato poisoning with other appendicitis patients.
