Amyloidosis of the larynx: a case report

Özden Tulunay1, Gürsel Dursun, Süha Beton, Hilal Erinç, Hünkar Batıkhan

A 75-year-old female patient presented with hoarseness
and foreign body sensation in the back of her
throat of one-month history. Direct laryngoscopy
showed bilateral, yellow, hyperemic masses on the left
false vocal fold and laryngeal ventricle. Both true vocal
folds were mobile. Excisional biopsies of the right
false vocal fold and ventricle showed extracellular,
insoluble, fibrillar protein accumulation, consistent
with amyloidosis. There was no evidence for neoplasm.
Serum and urine electrophoreses were negative.
The work-up for systemic amyloidosis and
multiple myeloma were negative. Treatment was
limited to surgical excision. No complications developed
within a six-month follow-up period.
