Management of pediatric difficult airway has always been a challenge to the anesthesiologist.

We present a unique case of 6-week-old infant posted for excision of a large cystic teratoma of face and scalp where the airway was secured effectively by using the retro-molar intubation and modification of conventional technique of ventilation and laryngoscopy.
