Laryngeal cysts are a rare cause of stridor. Only a few cases have been reported in the literature. This is a case of 19 days old infant presenting with stridor and feeding difficulty, successfully treated with direct laryngoscopic marsupialization of the cyst. The role of flexible laryngoscopy and CECT neck is pivotal. The child had an uneventful post-operative course and breathing and feeding improved.
