We report a case of severe maxillofacial injury, who while undergoing later stages of reconstruction surgeries, presented with an inimitable kind of air leak during mask ventilation and its interesting management using a nasopharyngeal airway. The case also enlightens the importance of evaluating the available computed tomography images as a part of preanesthetic check-up.
