She had 8 surgeries for laryngeal papilloma over 24 years. Then for the past 3 years, her ENT kept telling her she had reflux laryngitis. She was not getting better on acid reflux treatment, and came to visit me. She had recurrent papillomatosis.
This is a 10-month-old child with extensive laryngeal papilloma. He was seen because of noisy breathing. When he breathed in, the papilloma would suck into his larynx and partially obstruct his airway.
He ended up requiring surgery almost once a month in order to maintain his airway.
