Congenital tracheal stenosis is a rare medical condition in which the trachea (windpipe) is abnormally narrow at birth. This narrowing can cause breathing difficulties and can lead to life-threatening complications if not treated promptly. The severity of the condition can vary from mild to severe and can affect different parts of the trachea. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including abnormal development of the trachea during fetal development, genetic abnormalities, or other congenital disorders. Symptoms of congenital tracheal stenosis may include difficulty breathing, wheezing, noisy breathing, coughing, and cyanosis (bluish discoloration of the skin due to a lack of oxygen). A diagnosis is typically made through medical imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, or bronchoscopy.
