Abstract

A patient who had akinetic mutism was mistaken for a psychologic disorder or true coma. We experienced a case of reversible akinetic mutism and paraplegia for 5 hours after general anesthesia in a 28-year-old female who underwent debridement of chemical burn-induced skin necrosis on the left leg.
