Abstract

Laryngeal trauma is relatively uncommon but can be possibly life-threatenning. An isolated cricoids fracture associated with neck trauma is rare. We report a case of an isolated multiple fragmented cricoid cartilage fracture that was developed in a 30-year-old man after a neck trauma. It was diagnosed by computed tomography and treated successfully.
