Difficult tracheal intubation is a rare event according to the airway feature in child. This situation is mostly predictable, occurring in identified malformations and in specific diseases. Pre-operative clinical evaluation must detect facial abnormalities (lip or palate cleft, microtia, facial asymmetry...), micro or retrognathia, limited mouth opening, reduced distance between thyroid cartilage and chin, macroglossia and external ear malformations. According to this clinical evaluation, a strategy for managing difficult tracheal intubation is planned.
