Blastomycosis is an uncommon fungal disease which may mimic carcinoma of the larynx. Physical examination may show a granular appearance early in the disease with progression to laryngeal fibrosis. Histologic examination usually shows pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia, microabscesses, and giant cells. The broad-based budding yeast organisms may be easily overlooked unless special stains are used. Two cases of laryngeal blastomycosis which were originally treated as carcinoma are reported.
