A 28 years male patient did a suicidal attempt cutting his throat with a razor. He was urgently intubated in a peripheral hospital and referred to King Abdullah Hospital, Bishah, KSA as a suspected case of laryngeal trauma within the first 12 hours after the insult. On clinical examination he was intubated, on mechanical ventilation, with SO2100% and hemodynamically stable. There was a transverse wound in neck, closed by interrupted sutures. Local examination of neck did not reveal subcutaneous emphysema or hematoma. The thyroid cartilage was intact, but the cricoid could not be felt.
