This girl has malignant hyperthermia, a dangerous adverse effect of some anesthestic agents characterized by sudden high fever and rhabdomyolysis. The only drug among this list that can cause malignant hyperthermia is succinylcholine. The other drugs that cause malignant hyperthermia are the halonated gases (flurane, sevoflurane, etc.), but nitrous oxide does not cause it.
