In paediatric patients, airway management can be challenging due to unique anatomical and physiological variations. Hence, a thorough history, examination and pre-operative planning are essential in securing difficult airway in paediatrics. We report a case of a 7-month-old infant with rhabdomyosarcoma of the upper lip with anticipated difficult airway. The airway was managed with three different conventional techniques (modified nasal trumpet, supraglottic airway and direct laryngoscopy) for three different procedures in the same infant. The procedures were uneventful and recovery was good. This case report emphasises the use of conventional techniques in the management of difficult airway.
