Clinically relevant cartilaginous subglottic stenosis was found in 2 patients with Shwachman-Diamond syndrome (SDS) for which tracheotomy was required in one case. Considering the pathogenesis of SOS, including deficient chondrogenesis, we hypothesise that subglottic stenosis may be a rare symptom of SDS. Otorhinolaryngologist and paediatricians should be aware of the risk of airway pathology in patients with SDS. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
