Report of a rare case of vocal fold carcinoma that was obscured by a prominent vocal fold polyp.
Ear Nose Throat J. 1999 Aug; 78(8):601-2.EN

Abstract

We report the case of a 56-year-old man who was evaluated for hoarseness. Telescopic and fiberoptic examination revealed a huge, pedunculated polyp that obscured the vocal folds. Upon further examination, microlaryngoscopy revealed a coexisting superficial irregular lesion on the upper surface of the left vocal fold, which was identified as a microinvasive carcinoma. This unusual presentation emphasizes the importance of a microlaryngoscopic examination.
