Abstract: Corrosive substance ingestion in the acute phase may result in laryngeal injury, endotracheal or bronchial necrosis with mediastinitis, esophagus perforation. Most common late complications are fibrosis and strictures. Pharyngeal web is a rare anamoly which can be seen congenitally or after corrosive ingestion characterized by mucosal bands extending from the posterior pharyngeal wall anteriorly to the glottis. Challenges in anaesthetic management includes securing difficult airway due to distorted upper airway anatomy. Here, we report a case of pharyngeal web where we safely secured airway without injury to the webs with the use of video laryngoscope.
