Abstract: Stridor is a frequent symptom in the neonate. Often it consists of a discrete inspiratory stridor in an alert child or of a transient symptom of a viral respiratory infection. In both cases no specific therapy is required. Whenever stridor occurs in the first months of life, or when it is severe or chronic, or when stridor also persists throughout expiration, an underlying anatomic anomaly frequently exists. The following steps are important to the diagnostic management: besides a detailed and complete history and physical examination, an X-ray of the airways and, if necessary, laryngo/bronchoscopy, angio(cardio)graphy or computerized tomography of the chest and the cervical region. Subsequently, appropriate therapeutic management can be initiated by proficient and accomplished physicians.
