Abstract

Tracheal stenosis has numerous possible etiologies, including iatrogenic trauma from an over-inflated endotracheal/tracheostomy tube cuff, malignancy, chronic inflammatory diseases (eg, sarcoidosis), and various collagen vascular diseases (eg, Wegener disease, relapsing polychondritis). If an underlying etiology cannot be identified, the condition is termed idiopathic tracheal stenosis.
