Tuberculosis of larynx – case report
Ewa Niebudek-Bogusz, Joanna Kwiecień, Ewelina Wo¼nicka, Mariola ¦liwińska-Kowalska

Tuberculosis of larynx is nowadays not a common disease,
but still a current medical problem. Usually it is secondary
to a specific process in the lungs. In most cases the disease is
infiltrative and proliferative in its character. The symptoms of
the disease are non-specific and include: hoarse voice, cough,
problems with swallowing. Tuberculosis of larynx may imitate
a hyperplastic process. The tuberculostatic treatment that lasts
several months gives remission within the infected organs. The
authors describe a case of a young woman with tuberculosis
of lungs, bronchi and larynx. Post-treatment videolaryngoscopy
revealed proliferative lesions persisting in the vocal folds in spite
of the remission of the specific changes in the lungs and bronchi.
The applied phoniatric therapy did not improve the vocal
function of the larynx. Phonatory disorders which may occur
as the consequence of the tuberculosis of larynx are sometimes
permanent and difficult to eliminate by conservative therapy
procedures. Injection laryngoplasty using hyaluronic acid is an
alternative method of treatment.
