Pediatric airway tumors can prove to be quite challenging for anesthesiologists. We attempted to secure the airway in a toddler with a large tongue hemangioma using total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA) with dexmedetomidine and propofol, while preserving spontaneous ventilation.

Keywords: Difficult pediatric airway, total intravenous anaesthesia, tongue hemangioma
