Bonfil俟Q製 rigid fibroscope is an instrument used to perform tracheal intubation, proven to be effective both in patients with normal and in those with difficult airways. We use this device in awake intubation in a patient presenting with a large right neck mass and a tonsillar tumor which limited the mouth opening. Also, we describe our technique of insertion of Bonfil俟Q製 retromolar fibroscope from the right side of the mouth across the tongue.
