A rare cause of upper airway obstruction in a 5-year-old girl: A laryngeal web

A case is described of a 5-year-old girl with respiratory distress. She was intubated without difficulty, but developed respiratory distress on extubation. Laryngoscopy/bronchoscopy via a laryngeal mask airway™ revealed an extensive layngeal web which was removed with laser therapy. The causes and differential diagnosis of laryngeal web are discussed.

Abstract

A case is described of a 5-year-old girl with respiratory distress. She was intubated without difficulty, but developed respiratory distress on extubation. Laryngoscopy/bronchoscopy via a laryngeal mask airway™ revealed an extensive layngeal web which was removed with laser therapy. The causes and differential diagnosis of laryngeal web are discussed.
