It induced a significant HBsAg-specific T-cell proliferation and the(More)
Malignant melanoma of the larynx is a rare tumour. Only 31 cases of primary laryngeal melanoma have been reported in the literature. Cady et al., (1968) found only four cases in a group of 2,500 cases of laryngeal cancer seen over a 25-year period. A case of primary malignant melanoma of the larynx is presented along with a review of the literature.(More)
Subglottic and tracheal stenosis frequently present difficulties in management. Two cases of subglottic stenosis occurring after prolonged endotracheal intubation are presented where the vertical length of complete obstruction by scar tissue was greater than 2.5 cm. One case was successfully managed by the use of the laser and immediate insertion of a(More)
