Abstract:
Background: The connection between vitamin D and laryngomalacia is not entirely understood. We wanted to find out if there was any connection between laryngomalacia and vitamin D in our study.Materials and procedures In our study, we enrolled 32 patients under the age of one with a diagnosis of laryngomalacia without any other condition.A flexible endoscope was used for an amnestic, physical, and endoscopic evaluation. Laboratory tests were performed on the two groups’ serum calcium, parathormone (PTH), and vitamin D levels. Results: Infants in the experimental group had significantly lower serum vitamin D levels than newborns in the control group (p=0.002). Serum calcium and parathormone levels did not change significantly (calcium p=0.089, PTH p=0.689). Conclusion: In our research, newborns’ vitamin D levels were infants with laryngomalacia were observed to have greater rates than the control group. Serum calcium and parathormone levels, however, were the same. We propose that the incompletely understood aetiology of laryngomalacia may be caused by vitamin D deficiency.infants with laryngomalacia were observed to have greater rates than the control group.
