Abstract:
We report the first case of an anterior laryngeal web post gunshot wound in the modern literature. A 27 year-old man suffered a close range shotgun injury to his neck. He presented with stridor and a large open neck wound. Emergency tracheostomy was required. A postoperative fibreoptic laryngoscopy revealed anterior glottic web formation. This case report highlights the difficulties in managing acquired anterior laryngeal webs and reviews the only other case in the in the literature from 1915.
