PMID:  10878877     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Congenital laryngeal cysts are very rare and if mismanaged, lead to a high incidence of morbidity and mortality. The case may present as severe stridor and emergent management can obviate a tracheostomy, achieving cure in the process. We report here a case of supraglottic cyst, which was completely occluding the airway and was managed in the emergency setting.
