Since its introduction, the anterior cricoid split has proven to be a safe and effective procedure for the management of infants with acquired subglottic stenosis. In this article we report an unusual complication--an aerocele, which occurred on the 14th day following an anterior cricoid split on a 9-month-old child. The possible etiology and successful management of the aerocele are reviewed.
