Segawa's syndrome, dopamine-responsive dystonia, is a rare genetic disorder that typically begins in childhood by around 4–6 years of age. It is characterized by abnormal gait and dystonia. A 33-year-old man presented for autologous skin grafting of a nonhealing wound under general anesthesia. Successful anesthetic management of patients with this rare disease, though analogous in many ways to that of patients with Parkinson's disease, still pose significant challenges. We present anesthetic nuances to be considered in the management of a patient with Segawa's disease along with a pertinent review of the literature.
