Laryngo-tracheo-oesophageal clefts are rare congenital malformations of the upper aerodigestive tract. A high index of suspicion is required to appropriately diagnose these patients. Management is tailored to the patient’s symptomology, severity and extent of the cleft. Options include conservative, medical and surgical options, with the latter involving endoscopic or open surgical approaches.
