Fiberoptically guided tracheal intubation represents one of the most important advances in airway management occurring in the past 30 years. Perhaps, its most important role is the management of the anticipated difficult airway. Out of the available airway devices from the basic Macintosh laryngoscope to video laryngoscopes to the life-saving surgical airway techniques, fiberoptic-guided intubation still remains to be the most successful method in experienced hands during handling of difficult airway. We report a case of fiberoptic-guided successful nasal intubation in a spontaneously breathing awake patient under topical anesthesia with an anticipated difficult airway scheduled for commando's operation.
