Craniosynostosis is a birth defect syndrome characterized by the premature closure of one or more of the fibrous joints between the bones of the skull. The most common among these craniosynostosis syndromes is Crouzon syndrome. Airway management in such patients becomes challenging and requires an experienced and calm anesthesiologist for expert management. We report a case of successful usage of i-gel™ supraglottic airway device in the airway management of a newborn with craniosynostosis to be operated for enucleation for proptosis in the right eye. Well-planned anesthesia (induction-maintenance-extubation sequence) remains the key to success.
