Subglottic stenosis is a known complication following intubation, both prolonged or of short duration. Patients who present with even mild symptoms of airway obstruction following a period of mechanical ventilation should be evaluated for possible post intubation subglottic or tracheal stenosis. Herein, we describe a rare case of subglottic stenosis following a two-day intubation period. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first to be reported in the region.
