AN 11-DAY-OLD boy was hospitalized for apneic episodes and feeding difficulties. He was born by spontaneous vaginal delivery in the 35th week of pregnancy. He was intubated for 5 days. After extubation, he was treated with inhalations and pediatric nose drops. His condition improved and he was released. At the age of 1 month, he was admitted to the emergency department. He was afebrile and irritable and showed signs of poor nasal respiration and apneic episodes, which were relieved by crying. On physical examination, he was alert and active and exhibited difficulty in nasal breathing.
