Double Aortic Arch Presenting as Neonatal Stridor

YT Chan, DKK Ng, ASF Chong, JCS Ho

Stridor is a common complaint in neonates. Association with respiratory distress mandates early flexible bronchoscopic examination of the airway. We report a case of double aortic arch who presented with stridor and respiratory distress. Management of double aortic arch was discussed. Persistence of stridor after surgery and its management was highlighted. (HK J Paediatr (new series) 2003;8:126-129)
