Propofol infusion syndrome (PRIS)

This is actually a case report of PRIS treated with ECMO but attached is a nice mini-review of the condition.

The pathophysiology is complex but apparently involves, among many other things, impaired ability of FFA to enter the mitochondria for oxidation (as in Reye's syndrome or carnitine deficiency?) and impaired electron transport.
