Submental intubation is a very good alternative to tracheostomy when short term airway management is required with undisturbed access to oral or nasal airways. We report a case of basal cell carcinoma over the left nasolabial fold, involving the upper lip and alae of nose with coexisting coronary artery disease, old inferior wall myocardial infarction, and low ejection fraction managed successfully under general anesthesia with submental intubation.
