Abstract

This article reports an uncommon and fatal case involving a Latin American neonate who presented at birth with an acute upper airway obstruction secondary to a rare craniofacial deformity and an unusual nasopharyngeal mass. The multidisciplinary approach to the management of this infant with the Pierre Robin malformation complex and nasopharyngeal cystic neuroglial heterotopia included oral and maxillofacial surgery, pediatric general surgery, pediatric neurosurgery, radiology, and pathology. The specialized contributions of these team members are presented with respect to differential diagnosis, treatment objectives, and subsequent management of this complex pathologic process.
