Background Malignant hyperthermia susceptibility MHS is a life-threatening, inherited disorder of muscle calcium Casup 2 metabolism, triggered by anesthetics and depolarizing muscle relaxants. An unselected cohort of 870 ClinSeq participants were screened for MHS mutations using exome sequencing to identify putative pathogenic MHS variants in the RYR1 and CACNA1S genes.
