Abstract From 1994 to 1999, 19 cases of laryngeal papillomatosis were observed. The sex-ratio M/F was 0.9 and the mean age 10 years. The motive for consulting was dyspnoea for 45\% of the cases and in all these cases resulted in emergency tracheotomy. The only available means of intervention was peeling under general anaesthesia. An anatomopathological examination could be carried out for only 63.1\% of cases. Prevalence of the disease has been under-estimated for reasons of late diagnosis and the inaccessibility to health structures for some cases.
