Anesthesia
This information was brought to my attention by Diane Duval through the RTS Email List. The information was from http://www.healthwise.org/kbase/nord/nord461htm, which isn’t available at this time..

According to the medical literature, in some cases, individuals with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome may have complications (e.g., respiratory distress and/or irregular heart beats [cardiac arrythmias]) associated with a certain muscle relaxant (succinlycholine) and certain anesthesia.  Any situations requiring the administration of anesthesia or succinlycholine (e.g., surgical procedures) should be closely monitored by skilled professionals (anesthesiologists).”
