Abstract

Goldenhar Syndrome is a rare congenital entity which comprises of facial dysmorphism, oral cavity malformations and vertebral anomalies any of which could lead to difficult airway during anaesthesia. Here, we report a case of a 5-month-old infant who underwent a congenital talipes equino varies (CTEV) correction under general anaesthesia with caudal block. We experienced difficulty in mask ventilation, failed endotracheal intubation and transient desaturation which was anticipated thus managed successfully without serious morbidity to the patient.
