Abstract

Mohamad Najib Salleh¹ ², Suzina Sheikh Ab Hamid¹, Hazama Mohamad¹

 

There are many causes of laryngeal stridor in infants and young children which congenital laryngeal cyst (CLC) is one of the possible causes. Congenital laryngeal cysts are a rare cause of neonatal upper airway obstruction, leading to serious morbidity and mortality if diagnosis and treatment are delayed. The aetiology of this pathology is not clear since it can be congenital or acquired. They frequently promote respiratory tract obstruction in neonates, resulting in inspiratory stridor and shortness of breath. The gold standard for diagnosing CLC is still direct laryngoscopy. The laryngeal ultrasound and CT scan can help clarify things, especially if there’s a question about something else pathology. Surgical, endoscopic, or external approaches are used to treat these cysts. The best way to prevent recurrence is to obliterate the cyst. Small cysts can be removed endoscopically, but larger cysts must be approached externally.
