Case 6 introduces a newborn baby boy who is noted to have excessive salivation within the first 12 hours after birth. Copious secretions are seen at the mouth and nose, which are cleared by suction, but the problem recurs despite repeated suctioning. Episodes of coughing and mild cyanosis are noted, which are exacerbated when feeding is attempted.
