Aim: The utility of fiberoptic bronchoscopy to formulate the best airway management plan in a child with giant hydatid lung cyst Background: Management of hydatid cyst of lungs is a challenge for the anesthesiologist due to problems associated with airway and one lung ventilation, the potential for rupture of the cyst, dissemination, and anaphylaxis. Case description: We report an 11-year-old boy who was posted for video-assisted thoracoscopic removal (VATS) of a giant hydatid cyst of the left lung. Conclusion and clinical significance: Flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy provides a quick real-time visual assessment of the airway with minimal discomfort and risk to the patient and is a valuable tool in formulating the best and safest plan for securing the airway.
