Congenital epiglottic cyst is a rare affliction with potential for airway obstruction. A newborn boy was referred to our department for evaluation of respiratory distress and inspiratory stridor 7 h after birth. Through a transnasal fiberoptic laryngoscopy examination, a diagnosis of an obstructive upper laryngeal cyst was made. Immediate endoscopic surgery was performed 20 h after birth to completely remove the lesion. Two days after surgery, the patient resumed normal breathing pattern and showed no further episodes of stridor or airway obstruction. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd.
