Abstract
Congenital subglottic cyst is rare anomaly which can be fatal if not diagnosed timely. We are reporting a newborn who presented with silent/ weak cry at birth, noisy breathing and difficulty in breast feeding at 3rd day of life. CT scan revealed a well defined hypodense cystic lesion in the subglottic region producing mass effect on the airway leading to narrowing of subglottic, measuring 2.5 mm (sagittal section). The child underwent surgery (microlaryngeal cyst excision) at the age of 2 month for the subglottic cyst that was visualized just below the vocal cord. Child recovered fully at 3 months of age.
