In this article we present the case of an epidermoid cyst of sublingual space along with submental extension in a 35 year old lady who presented with a mass in the oral cavity. On examination a mass was seen on the floor of the mouth displacing the tongue superiorly. Diffuse fullness was noted in the submental region. The lesion was excised under general anaesthesia with nasotracheal intubation. The entire mass was removed intra orally. The histological features were suggestive of epidermoid cyst. The patient did well postoperatively and no recurrence was seen during 8 months follow up.

    Manufacturing defects of endotracheal tube (ETT) are still encountered in anesthesia practice. Many such defects go unnoticed during routine inspection prior to their use. Such defects in ETT may lead to partial or complete airway obstruction in an intubated patient. We report a case of partial...

    Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of Trachlight (TL) for nasotracheal intubation and to determine the relationship between the grade of laryngeal view and the subsequent ease of nasotracheal intubation using TL. Methods: Patients requiring nasotracheal intubation...

    Endotracheal intubation obviously may be life-saving, but it may also lead to complications, including those related to damage of the airways. Superficial damage of the trachea at the site of the endotracheal cuff may trigger the formation of an obstructive fibrinous tracheal pseudomembrane...

    The occurrence of epidermoid cysts in the oral cavity is extremely rare. These cysts generally present slow and progressive growth and often are not diagnosed until the second or third decade of life. Epidermoid and dermoid cysts in the floor of the mouth are painless, doughy or fluctuant...

    An expanding body of literature exists which describes the airway challenges and management options for lingual tonsillar hypertrophy (LTH). The use of retrograde intubation to secure a patient's airway in the setting of LTH has been previously unreported and should be considered early in the...
