We report a case of difficult endotracheal intubation in a patient with Treacher Collins syndrome. A sixteen-year-old female patient scheduled for general anesthesia had a displaced palatal tooth that interfered with laryngoscope insertion into the pharyngeal space. To address this problem, we successfully performed endotracheal intubation using a fiberscope while elevating the epiglottic vallecula using a King Vision™ video laryngoscope. A later operation was performed after tooth extraction without difficult laryngoscopy. Our experience stresses the importance of removing obstructions to laryngoscopic inspection prior to general anesthesia.
