Postoperative delirium in the intensive care unit is a serious problem that has recently attracted much attention. We present a 73-year-old female patient who was admitted by multiple fractures induced by an accident. We started general anesthesia for the operation of open reduction and internal fixation. After the discontinuation of general anesthesia, the patient was transported to the intensive care unit. The symptoms of delirium were developed and controlled with medications including haloperidols, benzodiazepines, and vitamins. The patient was recovered three weeks after the management and received two other operations, but delirium did not be developed again. She was discharged from the hospital without complications.
