We report a case of successful intubation via fiberoptic bronchoscope in a pediatric patient with a friable carcinoma oral cavity including the neck region posing difficulty in airway management. Out of the available airway devices from the basic MacIntosh laryngoscope to videolaryngoscopes to the life-saving surgical airway techniques, fiberoptic Intubation still remains to be the most successful method in experienced hands during handling of pediatric difficult airway.
