Fibrous dysplasia of the maxilla is a benign condition which presents as gross facial deformity and poses a great challenge to anaesthesiologists. The primary anaesthetic concern is difficult mask ventilation which requires a tailor-made approach for securing the airway, particularly in paediatric patients. Herewith, we report the successful airway management of a case of impossible mask ventilation in a paediatric patient with fibrous dysplasia of the maxilla using ProSeal™ laryngeal mask airway and C-MAC® videolaryngoscope.
