PMID:  11194523     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report the successful use of the intubating laryngeal mask airway for rescue and intubation in an anaesthetised patient with an unexpectedly large epiglottic cyst. This case illustrates that airway rescue and intubation with the intubating laryngeal mask is possible and preoperative airway assessment does not always provide reliable information about airway management.
