We present a case of extremely difficult airway management in a 56-year-old patient presenting for an elective repair of a recurrent inguinal hernia. He was a diagnosed case of severe ankylosing spondylitis resulting in limited cervical spine mobility and restricted mouth opening. Airway management was achieved with awake nasal intubation and the procedure was completed uneventfully.
