Blue Baby and Association of Tracheal Anomalies - A Rare Entity
Dr Pragya Gupta | Dr Arin Choudhury | Dr Virendar Kumar
Abstract: Tetrology of Fallot is a congenital heart disease. It was first reported in 1673 by Nils Stenson, a Danish anatomist. Later on, associated symptoms such as tracheal anomalies came into existence and we called them Blue Baby with difficult airway. We present a rare case of a 12-year old boy with Tetrology of Fallot, posted for intracardiac repair with incidental finding of a supraglottic glottic web at level of vocal cord that posed an anesthetic challenge for intubation.
