Abstract

一側声帯に多発した声帯嚢胞の1例を報告した。症例は53歳女性で,嗄声を主訴に当科を受診した。ポリープ様声帯と右声帯嚢胞と診断し,全身麻酔下に喉頭微細手術を施行した。右声帯に3つの嚢胞を認めた。嚢胞の大きさは,それぞれ4×2×2, 2×1×1, 1×1×1 mmでいずれも乳白色の薄い被膜に被われていた。病理組織学的にはいずれも上皮性嚢胞だった。外傷が反復して声帯上皮細胞の一部が上皮下に封入されて発育し,多発性に嚢胞を形成したと考えた。

We report a 53-year-old woman with multiple (three) vocal cord cysts. She visited our clinic complaining of deteriorating hoarseness. Indirect laryngoscopic and laryngofiberoscopic examinations showed a slight swelling in both vocal folds and cyst lesion in the right vocal cord. The patient underwent laryngomicrosurgery under general anesthesia. Through a laryngomicroscope, the three cysts were found to be situated in the center of membranous portion of the right vocal cord. The cysts had a smooth surface and a pale yellowish color and measured 4×2×2, 2×1×1, and 1×1×1 mm. Pathological examination of the surgical specimens showed that they were epidermal cysts. Their etiology was presumed to involve the inclusion of epithelial cells of the vocal cord as a result of repeated mechanical irritation.
