Suicidal cut-throat injuries are either unreported or rare. Cut-throat injury patients may present with airway compromise, aspiration, and acute blood loss with hypoxemia if major blood vessels are involved. They pose initial management challenges in the casualty and for the anaesthesiologists in securing the airway. They may be fatal if timely intervention is delayed. We are reporting a case of suicidal injury to throat with an axe leading to an open larynx with associated injury to left submandibular gland.
