Abstract

Stridor is frequently encountered in the pediatric age group and can be alarming to the parents. Many lesions and abnormalities can cause it and the challenge is to pinpoint a specific diagnosis effectively. The patient is usually referred to the pediatric otolaryngologist by the primary care physician who should be aware of the different lesions to avoid any delay in proper management. In the operating room, both the anesthesiologist and the surgeon should cooperate to reach a proper diagnosis or in the extreme situation save the life of the baby.
