Temporo mandibular joint ankylosis is an anticipated difficult intubation scenario. Awake fibre optic intubation is the safest approach to secure the airway. Availability of an adequate sized flexible fibreoptic bronchoscope is a prerequisite for successful endotracheal intubation. We report the use of a flexible urethroscope to facilitate nasotracheal intubation in a four years child.
