A 9-month-old female infant with intractable wheezing and frequent aspiration pneumonia was poor response to the usual treatment for respiratory disease. The barium swallow test revealed barium aspirating into trachea directly. Because of the high-risk nature for aspiration in the swallowing disorder infant, a nasogastric tube feeding therapy was prescribed. Fortunately, her symptoms were greatly reduced. One month later, the clinical and roentgenographic findings strongly support a causal relationship between swallowing problem and wheezing. Therefore, swallowing problem should be considered when a young infant has refractory wheezing, even when there is no developmental problem.
