Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) is associated with abnormal ossification of spinal and extraspinal appendages. Incidence of DISH is high in old age with predilection for males. Cervical hyperostosis can make intubation difficult in multiple ways. Here, we report a case of DISH bridging the cervical spine from C2 to C7 vertebrae managed using awake fiberoptic technique and a small-sized endotracheal tube.
