A case of congenital laryngeal atresia of infraglottic type in a newborn infant is described for is rarity and importance of early diagnosis. This case was associated with tracheoesophageal fistula, and died in 5 minutes of life due to asphxia. Failure to intubate in the neonate should raise the possibility of laryngeal atresia and emergency management should be provided. The lung tissue was normally developing despite the complete obstruction of the outlet of the air and possible amniotic fluid passage.
