• Infantile subglottic hemangioma is a rare, potentially fatal cause of airway obstruction. Diagnosis is made by history, neck roentgenograms, and direct laryngoscopy. A regimen of high-dose intravenous steroids in combination with oxygen and a mist tent is the preferred mode of therapy in cases where tracheostomy is not required.
