Pierre Robin Sequence (PRS) is an uncommon complex congenital syndrome with a clinical triad of micrognathia, glossoptosis and cleft palate posing a risk of upper airway obstruction and difficulty in feeding with or without multiple secondary abnormalities. We report a case of 3.5yr male child suffering from PRS along with left renal agenesis, bilateral CTEV, bilateral inguinal hernia, pectus carinatum, bicuspid aortic valve where successful ventilation and intubation was done and taking a tongue stitch along with nebulization and prone position helped to maintain airway during recovery.

Keywords: Pierre robin syndrome, Bicuspid aortic valve, Cleft palate.
