Neck masses may distort the airway and make even fibreoptic intubation difficult. A large mass may prevent the negotiation of a flexible bronchoscope beyond the obstruction. A combined direct laryngoscopy-assisted flexible bronchoscopy must be considered an option that can help intubation in select difficult airway situations and may prove lifesaving as it did in this case.
