Abstract

A case of recurrent respiratory distress, wheezing, and "noisy" breathing in a 6-month-old infant with a normal birth history and chest radiographic evaluation is presented. The distinction between primary and secondary tracheomalacia is outlined. This report emphasizes the importance of clinical history in the evaluation of primary tracheomalacia.
