Cystic hygroma (CH) is a neonatal abnormality that may cause respiratory problems especially due to pressure of huge masses located in the neck and thorax on the vital organs. A mother already known to have an intrauterine baby with CH underwent operation under general anesthesia. The newborn, who had cyanotic and respiratory problems, was immediately intubated and operated the day following delivery. This case report is intended to elaborate and discuss anesthesia in a newborn with CH and the mother.
