[Postintubation granuloma of the larynx].Masui. 2004 Jan; 53(1):72-4.M
A 50-year-old woman underwent tonsillectomy under general anesthesia. She developed progressive hoarseness two month after the tonsillectomy, and a large granuloma of the larynx was found. Surgical removal of the granuloma was performed by laryngo-microsurgery. We should keep in mind that postintubation granuloma of the larynx might develop after tracheal intubation, and careful airway manipulation is needed to avoid this potential complication.
