Upper airway obstruction in the newborn is frequently due to congenital laryngeal anomalies. One of these, the posterior laryngeal cleft, is often associated with subglottic stenosis and respiratory difficulty. This discussion of the anterior laryngeal cleft reports findings in an infant who required intubation immediately after birth and survived only 3 days. The anterior cricoid cleft was associated with severe congenital anomalies including congenital tracheal stenosis. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd.
