HUM-MOLGEN DIAGnostics/Clinical Research

30 March 1998
Diagnostic tests for malignant hyperthermia 

We have a medical student who was operated for breast fibroadenoma in 1994.
After such a long time, she happens to read her operation registers and she notice that she was suspected to  be malignant hyperthermia and some laboratory analysis such as serum phosphokinases and  potassium levels should be performed to confirm the diagnosis. Since then, no laboratory analysis have been done and noone remembers the situation exactly after this time period. We want to learn if there is any diagnostic criteria developed for the malign hyperthermia recently and is there any laboratory performs these analysis.

Looking forward to hearing and thank you in advance.
