Özet

Hypopharyngeal hamartomas are quite rare tumors that may cause nutritional or respiratory problems in neonates and infants. They may be confused with other benign laryngeal lesions. In this study a 7-month-old infant with congenital stridor and positional dyspnea caused by a hypopharyngeal hamartoma was reported with review of the literature. Hypopharyngeal hamartomas should be considered in the differential diagnosis of pathologies that cause respiratory or feeding problems in neonates or infants.
