Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a hereditary disease resulting from a chlorine channel defect with autosomal recessive transmission, a structural and functional disorder in the transport of chlorine (Cl) through the plasma membrane in epithelial cells in organs such as the lungs, pancreas, liver, intestines, sweat glands, and epididymis. The most affected regions are the lungs and the gastrointestinal system. These cases are important for their perioperative respiratory complications. We present an anesthesia method conducted on a 16-year-old female CF case receiving general anesthesia.
