This article presents the case history of a 4 month old infant diagnosed with Paradoxical Vocal Cord Dysfunction (PVCD) secondary to gastroesophageal reflux. The child presented with intermittent stridor which responded promptly to treatment of her reflux. This is believed to be the youngest person with PVCD reported in the literature and supports the concept that PVCD may be associated with multiple etiologies.
