Laryngeal papillomatosis affects infants and small children as well as adults. It is caused by Etiology of papillomatosis types 6 and The papillomas may vary in size and grow very quickly.
Without treatment it is potentially fatal as uncontrolled growths could obstruct the airway. These tumors can reoccur frequently, may require repetitive surgery, and may interfere with breathing.
The juvenile laryngeal papillomatosis is the most frequent benign tumour of the larynx. In Sir Morrel MacKenzie describes papillomas as pharyngo-laryngeal lesions at a child, and the term of juvenile laryngeal papillomatosis has been introduced by Chevalier Jakson in The etiological agent is HPV types 6 and 11 and the section of the respiratory tract the most frequently infected is the squamocolumelar junction. Juvenile laryngeal papillomatosis is a disease more frequent between 3 and 5 years, characterised by multiple relapses and exuberant growth at the level of the laryngeal mucosa.
The disease can be treated with surgery and antivirals. Papilomatoza laringiană se prezintă sub forma unor multiple formaţiuni tumorale papilare la nivelul corzilor vocale, de unde se pot extinde spre benzile ventriculare, epiglotă şi în cazuri rare spre trahee şi bronhii.
