Abstract

Tracheal tumors in the pediatric population are rare neoplasms that have devastating consequences if not evaluated and diagnosed in a timely fashion. As illustrated by this case, the tumors typically do not become symptomatic until marked airway obstruction occurs, and patients may present with acute respiratory distress. Radiologic advances, including 3-D CT tracheal reconstruction, are invaluable in the diagnosis of and surgical planning for tracheal neoplasms.
