OBJECTIVES: A case of tracheopathia chondro-osteoplastica causing sub-glottic stenosis is described. STUDY DESIGN: Case report and literature review. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 37-year-old man presented with a 15-year history of gradually worsening dyspnoea and stridor due to sub-glottic stenosis. His medical and radiographic records were reviewed. This patient's presentation, histopathological findings and radiology images are presented and discussed. RESULTS: Histopathological evaluation of microlaryngoscopy biopsy specimens, taken during laser debulking of the stenosis, confirmed the presence of tracheopathia chondro-osteoplastica. CONCLUSIONS: This is the first reported case of sub-glottic stenosis caused by tracheopathia chondro-osteoplastica which required an urgent tracheostomy.
