Abstract

A 60-year-old female with bridge-like subglottic granuloma, caused by long-term endotracheal intubation was reported. She successfully underwent resection of this granuloma under direct laryngoscopy with a CO<SUB>2</SUB> laser. In general, intubation granuloma occurs around the arytenoid cartilage. It was supposed that this subglottic granuloma occurred symmetrically and due to the remittent inflammation both granulomas had adhered at the midsagittal plave and achieved the bridgelike shape, causing remittent dyspnea.
