Persistent buccopharyngeal membrane (PBM) is a rare congenital anomaly. Very few case reports have been published to date. We report the case of a 5-year-old girl with PBM with a central 1 cm diameter perforation posted for excision of the membrane. We have briefly reviewed the embryology of PBM with a focus on perioperative anaesthetic concerns and airway management options.
