Subglottic cysts have been reported as a relatively rare problem of pediatrics who have a history of premature birth and period of intubation. They may cause significant upper airway obstruction and many cases require tracheostomy to airway management. Endoscopic marsupialization by microinstruments or laser has been standard primary treatment but a high recurrence rate has been reported. A 19-month-old child presented with stridor who has history of ventilation via an endotracheal intubation in the newborn period for 7 days. Radiologic examinations were performed for aggravated dyspnea symptom and subglottic cystic mass was found, then it was marsupialized at operation room and tracheostomy was done at the same time. After decannulation of tracheostomy tube, there is no recurrence of cyst nor upper airway obstruction for 29 months. We report this case with a review of literature.
Key Words: Subglottic cyst, Upper airway obstruction, Pediatric tracheostomy
