Neonatal tracheal injury represents a rare complication of endotracheal intubation. Previous case reports have demonstrated high morbidity and mortality (75%) associated with the rapid occurrence of subcutaneous emphysema, respiratory failure and death in this patient population. This mandates the prompt recognition, evaluation and management of this injury in the neonate. ...
