Laryngeal Tuberculosis Coexisting with Pulmonary Tuberculosis: A Rare Cause of Dysphonia in Children and Adolescents

L Alshadfan, H Yazan, E Cakir


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.
