Laryngeal malformation in Richieri-Costa Pereira syndrome: New findings
ABSTRACT Laryngeal structural anomalies were described in 13 cases of Richieri-Costa Pereira syndrome, and four previously reported cases were reviewed. The 17 individuals examined had the typical laryngeal anomalies and vocal disorders previously described. The new findings are the laryngeal microweb observed in three cases and arytenoid anteriorization movement observed in 14 cases.

ABSTRACT: Congenital webbing of the vocal cords is rare, and is usually incompatible with life. We report a case of an infant with Fraser syndrome who required a surgical airway because of a severe stenosis of her airway secondary to a glottic web. The decision process leading to tracheostomy in this neonate is described. The pertinent features of Fraser syndrome in relation to airway management are discussed.Pediatric Anesthesia 04/2004; 14(3):276-8. DOI:10.1046/j.1460-9592.2003.01217.x · 1.74 Impact Factor
