A case of tracheal stenosis following tracheostomy is presented. A 5-year-old-girl underwent decannulation after tracheostomy. A silicone T-tube was effective for the decannulation. The duration of the silicone T-tube insertion was 6 months. During this period the patient was able to breathe through the nose. She was allowed to stay at home after postoperative observation. Since the time the T-tube was removed, there has been no problem with phonation and respiration. The insertion of a silicone T-tube is one of the most effective treatments for decannulation in children.
