The majority of infants presenting with stridor have laryngomalacia; however, there are numerous other possible etiologies to consider. When a hoarse voice or weak cry is present along with laryngomalacia, laryngeal papillomatosis should be strongly considered. Diagnostic evaluation can begin with radiographs of the chest and neck, but direct laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy, and biopsy of the lesion remain the gold standard in achieving the diagnosis.
