Careful preoperative evaluation and planning is essential to prevent airway-related morbidity and mortality during induction of anesthesia. According to previous studies, predictors of difficult airway include Mallampati III, limitation of jaw protrusion, male sex, presence of teeth, limited neck extension, and reduced thyromental distance. There are no clear-cut guidelines regarding application of difficult airway predictors in patient having painful mouth opening. In this case report, we have described our experience of pre-emptive analgesia to increase the accuracy of airway assessment in patient having painful mouth opening.
