Laryngeal Lesion

Lesion of Larynx


Presentation

  • It presents as skin lesions; however, it can affect the eyes and upper aerodigestive system as well. We report a rare case of Bullous pemphigoid that had a laryngeal extension presenting with odynophagia.[omicsonline.org]
  • We had one case of Juvenile papillomatosis presenting with dyspnoea and hoarseness. MLS was done and papilloma was exercised. On follow up after 6 months no recurrence was seen.[jemds.com]
  • Hoarseness of voice is present in all benign laryngeal lesions. Vocal abuse and smoking are the most common causative factors. Key words: Benign, larynx, voice, vocal nodule, organic vocal disorder[scopemed.org]
  • This is noticeable in the second photograph where the nodules have been present for a long time. There is a figure of eight glottic closure which means that air is escaping both anteriorly and posteriorly but separated by the nodules.[app1.unmc.edu]
  • Cystic lesions of larynx Saccular cyst: obstruction to the orifice of cyst the saccule causes retention of secretions and distention of the saccule which presents as cyst in the laryngeal ventricle.[slideshare.net]
Hoarseness
  • He feels that there is constant hoarseness. He has no difficulty breathing.[app1.unmc.edu]
  • Hoarseness of voice is present in all benign laryngeal lesions. Vocal abuse and smoking are the most common causative factors. Key words: Benign, larynx, voice, vocal nodule, organic vocal disorder[scopemed.org]
  • Lesions No. of Cases % 1 Hoarseness 8 32 2 Chr.[jemds.com]
  • Hoarseness or voice changes Laryngeal cancers that form on the vocal cords (glottis) often cause hoarseness or a change in the voice. This can lead to them being found at a very early stage.[cancer.org]
  • Vocal Cord Evaluation If your child has persistent or worsening hoarseness, they need an evaluation.[stanfordchildrens.org]
Laryngeal Disorder
  • Conclusion: Organic disorder of larynx is the most common cause among benign laryngeal disorder. Hoarseness of voice is present in all benign laryngeal lesions. Vocal abuse and smoking are the most common causative factors.[scopemed.org]
  • The aim of this systematic review is to explore current evidence pertaining to the application of 585 nm pulsed dye laser (PDL) in the management of laryngeal disorders. The methodology involves a comprehensive analysis of pertinent data in MEDLINE.[laryngologyandvoice.org]
  • Laryngeal Disorders - Treatment Options Some voice disorders can be easily treated with appropriate medication, voice rest, increased hydration, and vocal hygiene. Others may require surgical intervention and/or extensive speech therapy.[texasvoicecenter.com]
Skin Lesion
  • It presents as skin lesions; however, it can affect the eyes and upper aerodigestive system as well. We report a rare case of Bullous pemphigoid that had a laryngeal extension presenting with odynophagia.[omicsonline.org]
Vesicular Rash
Withdrawn
  • The IV immunoglobulin needs to be gradually withdrawn after a clinical control has been achieved. In case of extensive laryngeal disease with airway compromise, it would be prudent to perform an elective tracheostomy to secure the airway [ 7 ].[omicsonline.org]

Workup

Dyslipidemia
  • Case Report 69 years old female patient who was known to have diabetes mellitus type II complicated with diabetic nephropathy, hypertension, dyslipidemia and ischemic heart disease and congestive cardiac failure presented to the cardiology OPD on her[omicsonline.org]

Treatment

  • They also reported that the vocal fold appearance returned to normal 3-4 weeks following treatment.[laryngologyandvoice.org]
  • Objective: To analyze the clinicopathological profiles of the study group of patients and the outcome after treatment.[scopemed.org]
  • The goal of the editors was to create the first truly multidisciplinary book in this field that addresses all aspects and treatment options.[books.google.de]
  • Belafsky Abstract Author Information Authors Article Metrics Metrics The purpose of this review is to describe the potential use of lasers in the treatment of benign superficial lesions of the larynx and discuss possible roles for vocal nodules.[journals.lww.com]
  • Because of the complex and multifaceted nature of this disease, treatment planning is best delivered through a multidisciplinary tumor board format.[accessmedicine.mhmedical.com]

Prognosis

  • Read more about your outlook (prognosis). Treatment A team of doctors and other professionals discuss the best treatment and care for you.[cancerresearchuk.org]
  • CT Well-defined, fluid-attenuation, non-enhancing rounded lesion MRI Well-defined, fluid signal intensity, non-enhancing rounded lesion Treatment and prognosis Different forms of treatment have been described for laryngeal cysts, such as aspiration, marsupialisation[radiopaedia.org]
  • Cancer Staging Staging the cancer helps doctors decide the prognosis and the best treatments to prescribe. Cancer stages are determined by the size and the exact location of the tumor.[cedars-sinai.edu]
  • In general, the higher the stage (both overall and within each category) the poorer the prognosis. Small glottic cancers have better prognosis than supraglottic ones.[atlasgeneticsoncology.org]
  • An antituberculous therapy offers a good prognosis, generally curing the disease without any sequel. Most lesions disappear over a 2-month period, as in the present case.[lungindia.com]

Etiology

  • Etiology Vocal cord paralysis may result from lesions at the nucleus ambiguus, its supranuclear tracts, the main trunk of the vagus, or the recurrent laryngeal nerves.[msdmanuals.com]
  • Laryngeal papillomatosis is a disease that is characterized by a verruca, whose main etiological agent is HPV.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com]
  • Etiology The exact cause of laryngeal cancer is still unknown. However, several interrelated co-factors (mainly tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption), are clearly associated with an increased incidence in laryngeal cancer.[atlasgeneticsoncology.org]

Epidemiology

  • It can be used for molecular epidemiology, diagnostics and targeting.[atlasgeneticsoncology.org]
  • Laryngeal Dysplasia: Epidemiology and Treatment Outcome. Annals of Otology, Rhinology & Laryngology , Vol. 104, Issue. 8, p. 596. CrossRef Google Scholar Blackwell, Keith E. Fu, Yao-Shi and Calcaterra, Thomas C. 1995. Laryngeal dysplasia.[cambridge.org]
  • Social aftercare Follow-up care is an important part of laryngeal cancer aftercare, especially after total or partial removal of the larynx, as this means severe deep cuts in social communication abilities. [16] Epidemiology [ edit ] Incidence is five[en.wikipedia.org]

Pathophysiology

  • Kasperkiewicz M,Zillikens D (2007) The pathophysiology of bullous pemphigoid. Clin Rev Allergy Immunol 33: 67-77.[omicsonline.org]
  • The used criteria of inclusion for the choice of articles had been the ones that had shown to the diverse types of injuries caused for the orotracheal intubation and its pathophysiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • Gastroenterologists can now more reliably detect these cellular changes when they are still completely harmless, and also more easily treat or remove them, preventing progression to actual cancer. READ MORE[cdxdiagnostics.com]
  • Of that is ahead important the knowledge, for the professionals of the area of health, the types of complications and its causes, with intention to prevent them, adopting measured of prevention of these injuries.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Unilateral vocal fold paralysis can be caused by a variety of diseases or disorders that prevent movement in one vocal fold.[texasvoicecenter.com]
  • The larynx is responsible for: Maintaining an open airway (breathing) Voice production Preventing aspiration (preventing food particles from accidentally entering the windpipe) Protecting the lungs from harmful or irritative substances What are the risk[singhealth.com.sg]
  • Vocal nodules- Treatment• Voice rest• Surgery for larger nodules and long standing nodules in adults• Excised by Microlaryngeal surgery• Speech therapy and re-education in voice production is necessary to prevent recurrence 8.[slideshare.net]
