Neonatal stridor resulting from intrinsic or extrinsic aberration in the upper respiratory tract often poses not only a diagnostic problem, but also a difficult airway and a dilemma as to the necessity / timing of surgical intervention. A 45 day old female child with increasing stridor since birth was managed by emergency intubation and CT scan followed by excision biopsy of the cystic left sided parapharyngeal mass via a transcervical approach. On histopathology, the excised specimen was reported as cystic salivary choristoma.
