There are various anecdotal reports and case series in the literature on congenital laryngeal cyst. These studies described pathology, presentation, and management of these cysts. The current case series is 2-year retrospective analysis of symptomatology and therapeutic difficulties on seven infants with laryngeal cysts. All the babies presented with moderate-to-severe stridor. Vallecular and base of tongue cyst are the most common sites. Flexible laryngobronchoscopy remains the main diagnostic test. The management initiated by the preoperative use of high-flow nasal cannula and followed by decompression (aspiration) and deroofing. Deroofing done by using the various energy sources such as coblation and lasers (carbon dioxide and diode). Coblation is faster, easier to use with no risk of fire, and bleeding.
