Giant cell tumor of mandible with intraoral extension with rheumatic heart disease with mitral regurgitation with complex partial seizure is a complex case. Securing and maintaining airway and haemodynamic management for prolonged surgery may be difficult for an experienced anaesthesiologist also. We used nasotracheal intubation with invasive monitoring to manage this case.
