Abstract

The larynx is a rare site of involvement of amyloidosis. We report two cases of laryngeal amyloidosis. Both patients were middle aged females with history of persistent hoarseness. Fibreoptic laryngoscopy used for diagnosis in both and debulking of the tumour was performed. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of amyloidosis. Appropriate follow up is an important part of the long-term management of the disease.
