Information About Laryngomalacia

Laryngomalacia is a congenital softening of the larynx (voice box) tissue above the vocal chords. This condition may cause the tissue to fall into the airway when a child breathes in. It is the most common cause of loud breathing in infants and children.

Most cases of laryngomalacia will resolve on their own before a child is two years old, although some children may have problems with breathing, eating and proper weight gain. Parents should consult their child’s doctor if they notice these symptoms.
