Abstract:We report a case of upper airway obstruction as a result of delayed massive lingual swelling following routine cleft palate repair in an otherwise healthy 12-month-old girl. We believe that ischaemia and venous congestion were the causes of macroglossia, after prolonged use of the Digman Dott tongue retractor. In any difficult and lengthy repair, we recommend the prophylactic insertion of a nasopharyngeal airway under direct vision by the surgeons after surgery to prevent potential upper airway obstruction.
