This paper describes a case of a difficult intubation in a neonate with the Pierre-Robin syndrome. Direct laryngoscopy was impracticable due to the atypical anatomy of the oropharyngeal cavity. The importance of adequate pre-anesthetic examination is stressed. Deep anesthesia during spontaneous respiration can facilitate endotracheal intubation in such cases.
