Abstract

Tracheal stenosis is defined by an obstruction of the trachea due to any reason. Cases generally present with stridor and difficulty in breathing. Tracheal stenosis may be acquired or congenital. In childhood, tracheal stenosis is usually encountered following entubation and incidence of tracheal stenosis is 0.6-21%. We report a case presented with stridor and was diagnosed with acquired tracheal stenosis.
