Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two infants with the Jarcho-Levin syndrome of vertebral anomalies underwent flexible fibre optic bronchoscopy. Central airway abnormalities not amenable to surgical correction were found in both patients. These abnormalities may contribute significantly to the respiratory failure seen in affected infants, and should be considered when evaluating continuing medical support.
