AbstractChildren suffering from Down's syndrome are prone to develop obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) due to craniofacial abnormalities, small upper airway, adenotonsillar hypertrophy and muscular hypotonia.1 OSAS will lead to various complications including failure to thrive.2 We report a Down's syndrome boy whose main presenting feature of OSAS was failure to thrive. He was successfully treated initially with nocturnal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) ventilation and subsequently with adenotonsillectomy.
