Abstract

Laryngomalacia is one of the commonest causes of congenital stridor in neonates. The treatment depends on the severity of the stridor. We present a case of 12 day old neonate with a history of stridor who was diagnosed to have laryngomalacia on clinical examination and confirmed by flexible fibreoptic bronchoscopy. The neonate underwent excision of excessive aryepiglottic fold under general endotracheal anaesthesia with controlled ventilation as the definitive surgery.
