Subglottic stenosis in the child may be congenital or ad-quired. Most of the times this stenosis is secondary to pro-longed tracheal intubation. Subglottic stenosis may be managed medically, as well as by endoscopic resection using electrocoagulation, criotherapy or laser ray, or by several surgical procedu-res. In the last three years we have treated nine patients with Subglottic stenosis aged between 8 days and 14 months.
Only in one occasion was the disease of congenital etiology. The remaining were due to prolonged intubation. Seven out of the nine patients were treated success-fully; three of them by medical means, three by electrocoagulation and one by surgical endoscopic resection of a Subglottic membrane. Two patients required tracheo-tomy, one after electrocoagulation and one because of a restenosis of the anatomosis after surgical resection of the congenital stenotic region.
Subglottic stenosis is a complex condition. The choice of its treatment demands understanding of the outcome of the disease as well as awareness of the histopathologi-cal stage of the disease and the different therapeutic ap-proaches.
