Laryngeal inflammatory pseudotumour: an unusual cause of airway obstruction.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  15876459     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a rare case of a laryngeal pseudotumour in a child presenting with stridor, which was treated by endoscopic laryngeal resection, without the need for a tracheostomy. A short review of the literature is also presented. Although rare, laryngeal pseudotumour should be considered as part of the differential diagnosis of stridor and upper airway obstruction in children.
