    A case of a 21 year old gentleman is described, with no history of preceding trauma, presenting with intermittent dysphagia to solids and fluids for 4 years. Neck examination at rest was normal. However on deep inspiration, the right thyroid lamina protrudes or becomes more prominent. The patient is able to return the larynx to its normal position with manual manipulation. Laryngeal examination with fibreoptic scope during rest and deep breath shows gross rotation of the laryngeal structures for more than 60 degrees on deep breath, with the vocal cords axis rotated to the left side. Management was conservative.

    A motorcyclist was involved in a motor vehicle accident and presented with respiratory distress and neck swelling with surgical emphysema. He sustained gross tracheal injury, severe pneumothoraces and lung contusions. As intubation was successful, the tracheal injury was not addressed immediately in view of the other severe respiratory problems. Evidence of aspiration lead to further investigations which confirmed the diagnosis 22 days post trauma. Thyrotracheal anastomosis was carried out without stenting. A complete cricotracheal separation is a rare event and can be easily overlooked in the emergency department.
