The presented case report delves into the intricate aspects of managing anesthesia for a patient diagnosed with cherubism undergoing surgical intervention. Cherubism, a rare genetic disorder characterized by bilateral jaw swelling and facial deformity, presents unique challenges for perioperative care, necessitating a multidisciplinary approach. Through meticulous preoperative assessment and collaboration among anesthesiologists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, and otolaryngologists, tailored strategies were employed to address the complexities associated with securing the airway and ensuring patient safety. Techniques such as fiberoptic intubation, preoperative upper airway anesthesia, and meticulous ventilation management were pivotal in optimizing perioperative outcomes. The implementation of a modified nasal intubation technique underscored adaptability in response to technical challenges encountered during airway management. By emphasizing the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration and patient safety, this case report contributes to enhancing understanding and awareness among healthcare providers regarding the perioperative challenges associated with cherubism, ultimately improving patient care and outcomes.
