Papillomata Of The Larynx In Children
Category: BENIGN GROWTHS IN THE LARYNX
Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery
Of all benign growths in the larynx papilloma is the most frequent. It
may occur at any age of childhood and may even be congenital. The
outstanding fact which necessarily influences our treatment is the
tendency to recurrences, followed eventually in practically all cases
by a tendency to disappearance. In the author's opinion multiple
papillomata constitute a benign, self-limited disease. There are two
classes of cases. 1. Those in which the growth gets well
spontaneously, or with slight treatment, surgically or otherwise; and,
2, those not readily amenable to any form of treatment, recurrences
appearing persistently at the old sites, and in entirely new
locations. In the author's opinion these two classes of case represent
not two different kinds of growths, but stages in the disease. Those
that get well after a single removal are near the end of the disease.
Papillomata are of inflammatory origin and are not true neoplasms in
the strictest sense.
