Pediatric unanticipated difficult airway in cases of subglottic stenosis (SGS) is always a challenge. We present two cases of SGS which were managed according to the pediatric difficult intubation protocols where supraglottic device was used as secondary intubation plan successfully. Airway management in these cases depends on the urgency of the surgery; if the surgery is nonemergent, the case can be postponed and both surgical and nonsurgical modalities of treatment can be offered; however, in wake of emergency surgery, surgical airway is indicated. Strategies of the pediatric airway management have evolved over the years, but the risk and morbidity associated with the adverse airway events loom larger.
