Abstract
Pierre Robin syndrome presents in the neonatal period with upper airway obstruction and feeding difficulties. Infants with pronounced micrognathia may fail to thrive because of chronic airway obstruction, or experience severe respiratory distress and feeding difficulties. This is potentially fatal and surgical intervention in these cases is necessary. We experienced two newborns with pronounced micrognathia who were managed with tongue-lip adhesion and tracheostomy. Herein, we report these two cases with literature reviews.
Key Words: Pierre Robin syndrome, Tongue-lip adhesion, Tracheostomy
