A 45-year-old female patient admitted for surgical management of carcinoma esophagus, presented with difficulty in insertion of left-sided 37 F and 35 F double lumen tube (Mallinckrodt® Broncho-Cath). Fiberoptic bronchoscopy revealed a subglottic web in the larynx just below the vocal cords and a tracheal web just above the carina. Differential lung ventilation could be achieved with a 35 F internal diameter double lumen tube (Portex® Blueline® Endobronchial tube).
