Laryngomalacia is the most common congenital laryngeal anomaly and the most frequent cause of stridor in infants and children. Symptoms usually appear within the first 2 weeks of life. Its severity increases up to 6 months. 15-60% of infants with laryngomalacia have synchronous airway anomalies.
500 full term babies ≥ 37 weeks of both sexes were delivered by different modes of delivery, with birth weights of ≥ 2.5 kg, with no history of natal complications and from the same community. Mothers of these babies are from different socioeconomic standards with different educational levels. These babies were diagnosed as having laryngomalacia within 2 weeks after their deliveries. They were followed up for 2 years observing the most common associated complications and its management.
70% of these babies developed repeated URT infections, repeated otitis media, adenoid enlargement and 60% were treated with ear tubes and adenoidectomy. 30% developed repeated choking, coughing, cyanosis and aspiration pneumonia. 20% of these babies were admitted to the ICU with cyanosis and right upper lobe consolidation. 4% developed repeated vomiting, poor weight gain and gastro-esophageal reflux with only one case needing medical treatment for reflux. 3% developed lacrimal canal narrowing, excessive tearing with ophthalmitis and eczematous skin changes around the eyes. Follow up revealed complete cure.
