Children with subglottic stenosis are usually not diagnosed at birth, but more often when they are a few months old, usually if a cold or other virus causes stress to your child’s airway.

At Boston Children’s, subglottic stenosis is diagnosed through a comprehensive aero-digestive evaluation that may include one or more of the following tests:

  • Imaging (chest x-ray, neck x-ray, airway fluoroscopy)
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Laryngoscopy
