Subglottic stenosis in Shwachman-Diamond syndrome - Is there a link?
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 SDS, 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.
