Laryngeal malformations are usually present at birth. Common anomalies include laryngomalacia, vocal fold paralysis, and subglottic stenosis; less common are congenital saccular cysts, laryngeal webs and atresias, and laryngeal lymphangiomas. Symptoms may range from stridor and hoarseness to respiratory distress. In some cases, patients are asymptomatic. Here, we present a case with abnormal laryngeal ventricles.
