abstract

  • We present the unique opportunity to correlate videostroboscopic findings with histologic examination. An immunocompromised patient with hoarseness because of ulcerative lesions of both vocal folds of uncertain cause died within a few weeks of initial presentation, and the larynx was donated for postmortem examination. Relevant history, as well as endoscopic and histopathologic findings, is presented.
