Abstract

Bifid epiglottis is a rare congenital malformation, which is most often associated with intraoral defects, polydactyly and malformations of the endocrine, genitourinary and gastrointestinal tracts. There have been several proposed mechanisms for the developmental mutation leading to bifid epiglottis, however, the exact cause remains unknown. We report here a case of a child who was found to have bifid epiglottis along with several other symptoms and anatomical malformations.
