Abstract

Laryngeal atresia is a very rare congenital anomaly requiring immediate tracheotomy. We present a case of laryngeal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula who showed immediate respiratory difficulty after ligation of umbilical cord and died of aspiration pneumonia at 8 days of age. The atretic portion of larynx is composed of irregulary arranged cartilaginous tissue, bundles of intrinsic muscle and soft tissue without epithelium-lined lumen. The lungs show normal development and evidences of aspiration pneumonia.
