Abstract

Several studies have reported on developing neurological complications following scrub typhus, however vocal cord palsy (VCP) symptoms in this case have never been reported. This work reports on a case where a twelve-year-old male child has been presented to the emergency department with stridor due to bilateral vocal cord palsy as a complication of post-scrub typhus infection.
