Congenital laryngeal atresia is a rare cause of airway obstruction that is almost always lethal within a few minutes after birth. Therefore congenital laryngeal atresia should be diagnosed in the prenatal period. If not, it should be considered in newborn infant with life-threatening symptoms at birth such as cyanosis and dyspnea that need emergent procedures like a tracheotomy. We report a case of congenital laryngeal atresia with single umbilical artery diagnosed in a one-day-old neonate who required a tracheotomy and ventilator care after intubation failure.
