The Bonfils retromolar fibrescope is a rigid fibrescope with an angled end. A 35-years- male with restricted mouth opening was scheduled to undergo reconstruction of fractured zygoma. We decided to try oral intubation under local anaesthesia with the Bonfils intubation fibrescope with a size 8.0 endotracheal tube loaded over it. This assembly was introduced from the right corner of the mouth till the curved tip had entered well inside the mouth. The scope was then brought to the midline and introduced further inside. Intubation was achieved easily.
