Laryngeal cyst in pediatric age group is an infrequent condition. It frequently presents with laboured respiration, respiratory distress during feeding, hoarseness, feeble or absent cry. Herein, we report a case of congenital laryngeal saccular cyst, which was successfully treated with transoral endoscopic cold instrumental excision. This case highlights the significance of suspicion in stridulous infants with feeding anomalies which warrants an early referral to otolaryngologist.
