Abstract

Respiratory distress and stridor are some of the common presenting symptoms for children in Pediatric Emergency Department. Most of these children are diagnosed as having common illnesses such as laryngitis, croup or laryngomalacia. However, Pediatric Emergency physicians must keep in mind other rare respiratory diseases other than laryngitis or croup in the differential diagnosis of stridor. Stridor may occur due to congenital and acquired diseases. Laryngeal web is one of the rare congenital causes of stridor, which usually presents in the first weeks of life; however, it is very rarely diagnosed in the later period. Herein, we report a one-year-old boy who was evaluated for croup and was diagnosed as having laryngeal web.
