Abstract
Laryngeal tuberculosis is very rare, but the most common sites of laryngeal lesions include true vocal cords and false vocal cords. The major symptoms of laryngeal tuberculosis are hoarseness, dysphagia, and cough. Epi-glottic tuberculosis has rarely been reported. We experienced one case of epiglottic tuberculosis that presented as acute epiglottitis and report it with reviews of literature.
Key Words: Epiglottitis, Tuberculosis, Larynx
