Genetic testing: Malignant hyperthermia is a rare disease that has been only described in patients who received either a muscle relaxant (succinylcholine) or inhalational agents such as sevoflourane or both. The website www.Mhaus.Org is dedicated to diagnosis and treatment of mh. In short, in patients who receive certain anesthetics, they can have a near lethal or lethal reaction to those drugs.
