Infantile subglottic hemangioma: A review and presentation of two cases of surgical excision



Infantile subglottic hemangioma: A review and presentation of two cases of surgical excision



International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology 41(1): 71-79



Subglottic hemangioma in infants is a well-defined entity with which otolaryngologists should be familiar. Although benign lesions with a natural history of regression, they may demand the attention of an otolaryngologist to maintain a secure airway. Throughout the years, multiple treatment options have been proposed and utilized for subglottic hemangioma. As of yet, however, there is no consensus as to the best treatment. Surgical excision is one treatment option available to the otolaryngologist which has previously received less attention. We review treatment options and report two cases of surgical excision of infantile subglottic hemangioma. Both patients were extubated by postoperative day number three and have remained symptom free. We support surgical excision as a valuable treatment option.
