Paediatric airway tumours can prove to be quite challenging for anaesthesiologists. We attempted to secure airway in a toddler with a large tongue haemangioma using total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA) with dexmedetomidine and propofol while preserving spontaneous ventilation.

Keywords: Difficult paediatric airway, tongue haemangioma, total intravenous anaesthesia
