Laryngomalacia (Congenital Laryngeal Stridor) in Children

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This


Congenital laryngeal stridor (also called laryngomalacia) results from a congenital (present at birth) anomaly of your child's larynx (voice box). This anomaly, or weakness, can cause stridor, which is a high-pitched sound that is heard best when your child breathes in.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
