MT Soo, PP Iu, AKT Chau, DKK Ng, CSW Chiu, PY Chow, LCK Leung

We report a case of pulmonary artery sling and congenital tracheal stenosis in a neonate who presented with stridor and respiratory distress. Management of tracheal stenosis, in particular, the use of slide tracheoplasty, is discussed and reviewed.
