Abstract: Objective: This clinical report is the first literature report exploring the issues of an absent epiglottis in children diagnosed with Nager syndrome. Absent epiglottis has previously been described in children with Pierre Robin sequence and other syndromes. Conclusion: The function of the epiglottis and its contribution to swallowing has always been debated. In this article and from our literature review, we felt that absent epiglottis possibly contributed to the aspiration risk and may partly explain the long-term feeding issues in these children despite corrective surgeries. � Copyright 2017 American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association.
