Fungal laryngitis from Flovent

I had seen her 3 months earlier for her tracheostomy tube which had been removed and she had completely normal vocal cords at that point. The swelling beneath her vocal cords is from the previous tracheostomy tube scar. She then developed hoarseness, which I would attribute to using a Flovent inhaler.

She has used steroid inhalers and develops recurrent fungal infections of the larynx. Presently she is on Pulmicort when the current infection developed. She has almost no voice. The vocal cords are very stiff and during stroboscopy the edges do not align.
