Maffucci syndrome is an extremely rare, sporadic, and nonhereditary disease characterized by enchondromatosis, bony abnormalities, and vascular malformations. We report a successful anaesthetic management of an adult patient with Maffucci syndrome scheduled for surgical excision of parathyroid adenoma, who had numerous enchondromas, haemangiomas, and skeletal deformities involving different parts of the body and posing significant challenge during positioning, securing intravenous access, and insertion of endotracheal tube. Awareness about this syndrome is of paramount importance because similar patients may be encountered with increasing frequency for incidental or corrective surgeries.
