Laryngocoele is a rare, benign laryngeal disease causing a variety of symptoms. However, this condition can lead to upper airway obstruction, thus posing problems in airway management and ventilation. Therefore, prior planning of anaesthetic and airway management of such patients is desirable, wherein awake intubation techniques are safer methods of securing a definite airway. Awake videolaryngoscopy-guided intubation can be safely used as an alternative to awake fibreoptic bronchoscopy-guided intubation.
