Vallecular cyst is a benign cyst with unknown aetiolgy. It is a rare presentation in adult and may obscure view for airway intubation. Prompt anticipation of difficult airway is important to reduce morbidity and mortality. We describe a case of vallecular cyst with surgical option for airway access and discuss the surgical management option based on current literature review.
