Spontaneous Giant Laryngeal Granuloma in the Absence of Laryngeal Injury.
J Voice. 2020 Jan; 34(1):162.e1-162.e3.JV

Abstract

The etiology of laryngeal granuloma can typically be attributed to endotracheal intubation, vocal abuse, or gastroesophageal reflux disease. There is a strong male predominance, except in cases due to intubation, where incidence is higher in women. We report a case of spontaneous development of multiple granulomas in a female with no history of intubation who presented with hoarseness and massive bilateral supraglottic masses obscuring her glottis. The disparity between the massive lesions and asymptomatic reflux highlights the need for further research in the pathophysiology of laryngeal granulomas.
