Laryngeal web is a condition in which your child’s larynx (voice box) contains a layer of web-like tissue.  This partially obstructs your child’s windpipe, causing frequent shortness of breath and other symptoms.

What Is laryngeal Web? 

Laryngeal web is a rare condition in which your child’s windpipe is partially constricted, or narrowed, making it difficult to breathe normally. The larynx contains web-like tissue that limits the volume of air flowing in and out of the windpipe. The web may be very thin or thicker, which will determine the severity of your child’s breathing limitation and may also impact the appropriate treatment method.
