Rights and Permissions

Hemangioma is by far the most common lesion of the subglottic airway in newborn and infants. It may cause severe, even life-threatening respiratory obstruction. A definitive diagnosis is based on direct endotracheal inspection of the subglottic airway. Plain radiograph of the neck may aid in establishing the diagnosis prior to endoscopy. This is a case report of prenatal diagnosis of subglottic hemangioma by fetal MRI and its management by planned delivery and tracheostomy.
