Treatment & Care
How is congenital laryngeal stridor treated?
In most cases, congenital laryngeal stridor is a harmless condition that resolves on its own, without medical intervention. It will likely improve by the time your child is 18 months old. It has no long-term complications. In some cases, the stridor is apparent until about the age of 5. Each child's case is unique. About 10 to 22 percent develop severe respiratory problems which require medical and surgical interventions.
