Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Neonates and infants are obligate nasal breathers and nasal obstruction in this age group can be a life threatening emergency. Even though the commonest cause for nasal obstruction is nasal oedema, bony stenosis of the posterior choanae or pyriform aperture is quite common and may be seen on CT scans. We describe a case of mid-nasal stenosis in a neonate and discuss the aetiology and management of nasal obstruction in this age group.
