Hanhart's syndrome (oromandibular-limb hypogenesis syndrome) is a rare disease characterized by hypoglossia/aglossia, various distal limb defects and micrognathia. Difficult airway due to micrognathia may complicate anaesthetic management in this syndrome. We describe the anaesthetic management of a child with Hanhart's syndrome undergoing plastic reconstructive surgery.
