Amyloidosis in larynx

Localised laryngeal amyloidosis is a rare tumour of the upper respiratory tract, which is characterised by extra­cellular accumulation of proteinaceous material in the submucosa. The aetiology is still unclear. This is a case report of localised multifocal amyloidosis located to larynx and rhinopharynx. A 50-year-old women with a history of progressive dysphonia and dyspnoea underwent ear-nose-throat and haematological investigation with no signs of systemic involvement. The amyloid deposits in larynx were effectively treated with laser resection in general anaesthesia and regular follow-up.
