Abstract

Laryngeal Tuberculosis (TB) is a rare granulomatous infection affecting the larynx usually secondary to pulmonary TB, but can also occur primarily without pulmonary involvement. Increased incidence of immuno-compromised states, presence of drug resistance, atypical presentations, non specific radiological features and close differential diagnoses pose a challenge for management of cases. We discuss an atypical presentation of Primary Laryngeal TB which was managed by us.
