Type 1 laryngomalacia was the most commoly encountered (29,4%). Most with severe laryngomalacia (52,9%) needed medical treatments in our study. GERD and pneumonia are theo two common comorbidities in our study. Medical comorbidites were associated with severe laryngomalacia.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions</strong>: Early diagnosis of laryngomalacia by typical clinical presentations and flexible fiberoptic laryngoscopy may improve the disease severity and outcomes of laryngomalacia patients.
