Abstract

Introduction: Intraoral synechia is a rare congenital condition, generally associated with other maxillo-facial malformations. We present a neonate with congenital intraoral bilateral synechia without any other facial anomalies. Case Report: In this paper, we present a 19-day-old male neonate with congenital intraoral bilateral synechia without any other facial anomalies. We review the literature to discuss the surgical andanesthesia management of this rare congenital disease. Conclusion: The disease manifested with a wide spectrum of symptoms. Most cases need surgery and airway management. In patients with a low risk of bleeding or a compromised airway, it is possible to manage them withfacemask-inhalation anesthesia and maintain spontaneous breathing.
