Abstract An unusual complication is presented following a temporomandibular arthroscopy carried out under general anaesthesia. Severe cervicofacial oedema occurred immediately after surgery which required prolonged endotracheal intubation. Retrospective analysis revealed a massive fluid escape in the surrounding tissues leading to laryngeal oedema.
