A two year old boy weighing 10kg presented with history of fever, neck swelling, difficulty in swallowing and breathing. On examination of the child and neck X-ray (lateral view) confirmed it as retropharyngeal abscess. Child was posted for incision and drainage on an emergency basis. We present this case as it poses great challenge to the anesthesiologist due to difficult intubation and in techniques managing difficult airway particularly in the pediatric patients.
