This case report highlights the anaesthetic management of a patient who had residual muscle paralysis following neuromuscular blockade, which was attributed to hypothermia and corrected by administration of amino acid solution. The various causes of residual neuromuscular blockade should be considered when treating such a patient. Amino acid infusion has been found to hasten the recovery from neuromuscular block due to vecuronium bromide aggravated by hypothermia.
