Long QT syndrome is an inherited disorder of the heart's electrical activity that may also be associated with malignant arrhythmia and cause sudden death. In addition to this inherited condition, several commonly used anesthetic drugs can prolong the QT interval. We present here a 17-month-old male patient who underwent general anesthesia for a cochlear implant. No cardiac arrhythmia was observed in the patient, whose muscle relaxant effect was reversed using sugammadex. The application of intravenous anesthetics was preferred to maintain anesthesia for this patient and was safely applied.
