Abstract

Recently, laryngeal tuberculosis has been a rare disease. However, some individuals still develop tuberculosis even today, so careful attention should be paid to this diseae. In this paper, a case of laryngeal tuberculosis is reported. The patient was a 30-year-old female. She presented with a chief complaint of hoarseness, and had granulomatous changes in her bilateral false cords, vocal cords, and subglottic region. Diagnosis was established by the identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in the tissue sample. The glanulomatous lesion responded well to treatment with anti-tuberculous chemotherapy. We report the details of this patient together with a discussion of the relevant literature.
