Abstract

We have treated 4 cases of laryngeal tuberculosis during the past 6 years. All patients complained of hoarseness. Laryngoscopic findings revealed glanulomatous lesions in the vocal cords and in the false vocal cords. After antituberculous treatments, their local findings markedly improved.<br>It is difficult to diagnose elevated lesions as laryngeal tuberculosis, since local findings and the age distribution of this disease are similar to those of laryngeal carcinoma.<br>Although laryngeal tuberculosis is rare in modern Japan, it is important to be aware that this disease still exists.
