Abstract

Laryngeal tuberculosis is an uncommon disease and should be considered as a differential diagnosis in any laryngeal disease, in particular in the case of a laryngeal carcinoma. It is difficult to differentiate laryngeal tuberculosis from carcinoma through imaging and needs clinical and histopathological correlation. We describe the case of a 26 year old man who presented with the clinical picture of laryngeal cancer, but which turned out to be tuberculosis.
