Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is a rare genetic disorder. Susceptible one could suffer fatal condition if the patient is exposed to triggers. MH can be seen in many general anesthesia procedures using volatile anesthetics. In susceptible patients who will be undergoing surgery, the most important is to prevent intraoperative MH despite overcoming the crisis. This case will discuss an elective spine surgery performed in a patient with a family history of MH.
