摘要

The severity of airway obstruction varies in infants with Pierre-Robin syndrome (PRS). Some have severe upper airway obstruction that results in respiratory failure and even death. We report a case of neonate with isolated PRS who had a severe airway obstruction and respiratory failure after birth. She had complications of bilateral pneumothorax, subcutaneous emphysema, and hypoxaemia due to difficult tracheal intubation. Respiratory failure recurred immediately after extubation; she was resuscitated by inserting a laryngeal mask airway. The laryngeal mask airway was left inserted for 6 days. It was successful in this patient and eliminated the need for invasive surgical procedures. In conclusion, the relatively long term use of a laryngeal mask airway, which has not been reported before, could be an alternative therapy for patients with PRS with airway obstruction.
