Abstract

Laryngomalacia, congenital vocal cord palsy and laryngeal cleft are three separate pathologies which can independently cause stridor and failure to thrive in a neonate. We present a unique case all three entities. The diagnosis was confirmed on direct laryngoscopy and the cleft successfully repaired endoscopically. To our knowledge, this is the first case report where an infant presents with three contemporaneous pathologies; successfully treated endoscopically without intubation or tracheostomy.
