Abstract

  Congenital stridor due to bilateral abductor cord palsy is rare. Congenital stridor due to laryngomalacia is the most common cause. Congenital abductor cord palsy (ACP) is the second most common cause. Vocal cord palsy (VCP) can be either congenital or acquired. It can be either unilateral or bilateral. Most common cause of abductor cord palsy is idiopathic. Congenital CNS anomaly like Arnold Chiari malformation is the most common cause resulting in B/L ACP. Here we report a case of congenital b/l abductor cord palsy presenting with tracheomalacia.
