A 40-day-old female child presented to us with an oral cavity mass, noticed at birth and progressively increasing in size. Preoperative computed tomography revealed intracranial extension of the lesion. Airway management, securing and maintaining invasive vascular access peri-operatively and transport of the patient to MRI suite were the major challenges. Mask ventilation was difficult and successful intubation required three attempts. Otorhinolaryngologists were present in the theatre during induction to perform a tracheostomy if the situation so demanded.
