Abstract: We report a 3 months-old-male infant presented with recurrent cough, noisy breathing and regurgitation of feeds since 15 days of life. Examination revealed inspiratory stridor. CECT showed cystic lesion in base of tongue. After excision it was proved a case of vallecular cyst on histopathology. Although rare, vallecular cyst should be included in the differential diagnosis of congenital laryngeal stridor in neonates. The literature of vallecular cyst is being reviewed in the current article.
