le Roux, B. T., Henderson, B. J., Kürklü, E. U., and Rogers, M. A. (1974).Thorax, 29, 564-566. Thoracocervical cysts as a cause of stridor. In five patients with severe stridor four were shown to have as the cause a duplication of foregut and the fifth a cystic hygroma. All were managed surgically and are well. In one patient tracheal obstruction was so severe that asphyxia and an episode of cardiac arrest preceded surgical management. Foregut duplication, particularly in children, is an important and remediable cause of respiratory obstruction.
