Abstract: Tuberculosis has become a major health problem in the recent years. Extrapulmonary tuberculosis is gaining importance and it accountsfor approximately 15% of all new cases. Laryngeal tuberculosis is one of the rarer forms of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, and today laryngealinvolvement of the tuberculosis infection is less than 1% among tuberculosis patients. It may be confused with laryngeal malignancies, because it is usually seen in smoker male patients and it is generally accompanied by hoarseness and appearance of a mass at endoscopy.Usually, it is seen as a complication of pulmonary tuberculosis. When tuberculosis is as widespread as today, laryngeal tuberculosis shouldalso be considered in differential diagnosis of patients presenting with sore throat, otalgia and hoarseness. In order to reach a definitive diagnosis microbiological and histopathological sample should be taken.
Keywords: Laryngeal tuberculosis, tuberculosis, mycobacterium tuberculosis, Antituberculous agent, Dysphonia, vocal cords
