The diagnostic and treatment of verrucous lesions of the larynx involves a high level of suspicion by the physician attending the patient. The causes may go from unspecific laryngitis to neoplasia and granulomatous diseases. This kind of lesion is uncommon and the presentation aspects may vary broadly. The lesions in larynx are significant source of morbidity. The onset of symptoms is insidious and the diagnosis is usually delayed. Symptoms include dysphonia, dyspnea, dysphagia and odynophagia… 

Factors Associated with Clinical and Topographical Features of Laryngeal Tuberculosis

TLDR
smoking appears to be associated with the development of more extensive LTB lesions, and LTB with dyspnea on exertion and odynophagia with consequent impairment of nutritional status, and the need for histopathologic confirmation is emphasized.

A Rare Case of Laryngeal Tuberculosis in Children

TLDR
A rare case of laryngeal TB in children has been reported and the child has been treated with children OAT regimen and showed improvement in clinical condition.

Chronic laryngitis caused by Mycobacterium Kansasii in a traveler

TLDR
A 58‐year‐old female with laryngitis for 5 years, fevers, chills, fatigue, malaise, myalgias, anterior neck pain, and night sweats is presented, the first case of isolated nontuberculous mycobacterial vocal fold infection.

Impact of laryngeal sequelae on voice- and swallowing-related outcomes in paracoccidioidomycosis

TLDR
There were no dysphagia complaints and only a few mild changes were found on the fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing, suggesting that this evaluation should be performed only in specific cases.

Upper Respiratory Tract Tuberculosis.

TLDR
Treatment of URT-TB is modified on the basis of culture and sensitivity reports in cases of suspected drug resistance, and surgical intervention may be required for some patients with abscess formation and progressive disease unresponsive to medical therapy.

Mucosal Leishmaniasis: An Underestimated Presentation of a Neglected Disease

TLDR
Considering both its highly disfiguring lesions and its possible lethal outcome, ML should not be underestimated by physicians and is expected to increase its burden in many countries as sandfly vector distribution is widespreading towards non-endemic areas.

Current clinical propensity of laryngeal tuberculosis: review of 60 cases

TLDR
Clinically, granulomatous and ulcerative types of laryngeal tuberculosis were still prevalent, however, the incidence of atypical types such as polypoid and nonspecific types were on the rise and were prevalent in patients with inactive tuberculosis or normal lungs status.

Blastomycosis in otolaryngology: Review of a large series

TLDR
To determine the frequency of head and neck manifestations, records of patients with blastomycosis seen at the Mayo Clinic from 1960 to 1990 were reviewed and found that involvement of the skin and mucosal surfaces, including the larynx, was common.

Laryngeal manifestations of paracoccidioidomycosis (South American blastomycosis).

TLDR
Laryngeal paracoccidioidomycosis may be a difficult diagnosis for the unsuspecting clinician to make and diagnosis of carcinoma must be ruled out by histopathological examination or culture of a specimen.

MRI of head and neck paracoccidioidomycosis.

TLDR
Mucosal lesions affecting the oral cavity, oropharynx and larynx, with head and neck lymph node enlargement, and differential diagnosis includes other granulomatous infectious diseases, especially tuberculosis, and cancers such as squamous cell carcinoma and lymphomas.

TLDR
Paracoccidioidomycosis is the most important systemic mycosis of the tropical Americas and can affect any organ, causing symptomatic or asymptomatic lesions.

TLDR
The first case of paracoccidio-domycosis, in its cutaneous-mucosal form, diagnosed in French Guiana is described, with a 20 year-old Brazilian man presented with multiple disseminated cutaneous lesions, predominating on the face, and composed of multiple nodules and two ulcerations.

TLDR
Paracoccidioidomycosis should be suspected in patients with an appropriate travel history who experience weight loss and have pulmonary, mucosal, and cutaneous lesions and therapy with imidazole antifungal medications is reviewed.
