A 35-week pregnant patient with ankylosing spondylitis and a known previous failed intubation required an elective caesarean section for intrauterine growth retardation. Regional anaesthesia was prevented by extensive spinal fusion. The anaesthetic management involved an awake oral fibreoptic intubation followed by induction and maintenance of general anaesthesia allowing delivery of a live infant without harm to the mother.
