Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (BWS) is a complex overgrowth syndrome. Affected children require surgeries for various reasons such as correction of macroglossia, abdominal wall defects, cleft palate or neoplasms. Anaesthesiologists often face problems in the form of a difficult airway, associated congenital heart disease causing haemodynamic compromise and hypoglycaemia, especially during the neonatal period. We discuss the management of a child with BWS scheduled to undergo tongue reduction surgery for macroglossia.
