The article discusses asymmetry of bispectral index (BIS) values during maintenance of general anaesthesia in a post-hemispherotomy patient with Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS). The authors propose bilateral BIS monitoring for safe maintenance of general anaesthesia in patients with SWS. It highlights the case of a four-year-old boy with SWS who was scheduled for dental treatment under general anaesthesia.
