Vocal polyp

Clinical features:

+ History:

38 years old male patient came to the hospital with complaints of

1. Change in voice - 4 months
2. Breathlessness - 2 months

Breathless was more on exertion.

Patient was a chronic smoker for the past 15 years.

++ Video laryngoscopic findings:

Video laryngoscopy showed globular pale polyp arising from the medial wall of the right vocal cord.
The polyp was so large that it occluded nearly 90% of the laryngeal inlet. This could be the reason for
breathlessness.
