Laryngeal tuberculosis is a rare extra-pulmonary manifestation of tuberculosis, and frequently presents with tumour-like symptoms and clinical findings. Uncommon clinical features are to be expected by the ENT specialist, who should be aware of these recently changing presentations. Despite the dramatic reduction of the incidence of the disease during the last few decades, a perceptible increase in case reports has lately been noted and may prove significant. Treatment remains conservative and long-term follow-up is suggested. A relevant case of laryngeal tuberculosis presenting as a supraglottic carcinoma is presented, its diagnosis and management are detailed, and suggestions are offered based on a literature review.
