Abstract

With early diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis and availability of effective antituberculosis chemotherapy, prevalence of laryngeal tuberculosis had decreased significantly. Because of similar clinical presentation and risk factors, laryngeal tuberculosis is often confused with laryngeal carcinoma and diagnosis was usually made while work-up for malignancy. Here we are presenting one such case of 55 years old male, initially suspected as laryngeal carcinoma was diagnosed to have secondary laryngeal tuberculosis.
