Abstract
Primary laryngeal candidiasis is rare in immunocompetent patients and is prone to confusion with early glottic carcinoma or leukemia. We experienced a case of 74-year-old man who has 3- month history of hoarseness. The pathologic diagnosis was laryngeal candidiasis. He was treated with antifungal agents for 4 weeks after vocal cord stripping under general anesthesia. After treatment, the patient had no candidiasis or discomfort with his voice. We report this case with a review of literature.
Key Words: Larynx, Vocal cords, Candidiasis, Leukoplakia
