The loryngeol mask airway has become one of the major tools of modern anesthesia airway management. Despite the fact that no time limit has been recommended regarding its safe use in spontaneously breathing children, or adults, there is still reluctance to use the laryngeal mask airway in operations of long duration. We report the case of an uneventful 5-hour long laryngeal mask anesthesia in a spontaneously breathing 11-year-old boy undergoing lower limb surgery.
