An eight-month-old girl underwent a computed axial tomographic study of the chest and neck for investigation of expiratory stridor. Following the scout scan, severe laryngospasm developed. While no cause for the laryngospasm was found, the computed axial tomographic chest study showed marked changes in the lungs consistent with absorption atelectasis which we postulate occurred secondary to laryngospasm.
