L Alshadfan, H Yazan, E Cakir


Abstract

Laryngeal involvement by tuberculosis (TB) is very rare, representing <1% of all cases. It could be primary or coexisting with pulmonary TB. We presented this case of laryngeal TB coexisting with pulmonary TB of an adolescent who presented with chronic and progressive dysphonia without any typical constitutional symptoms. She had no history of contact with active TB case, negative tuberculin skin test, and positive radiological evidence of pulmonary involvement. Dysphonia is a rare symptom of extrapulmonary disease.

結核病(TB)的喉部累及非常罕見,在所有病例中少於 1%。它可以是原發或同時有肺部TB。作者報告此例喉部TB同時伴有肺部TB的少女,表現為慢性進展性發音困難,而無典型全身症狀。她沒有活動性TB病人接觸史,TST檢查陰性,而肺部病變放射檢查陽性。雖然發音困難是一種肺外疾病的罕見症狀,但醫師在診斷 TB病例時也須提高警覺。
