 en An Unexpected Cause of Hoarseness of Voice in a Healthy Teenager
Wong, Siong Lung & Ibrahim, Zainal Abidin


Laryngeal amyloidosis is a rare cause of stridor in a healthy young adult. We report a case of localised laryngeal amyloidosis, including our MRI findings, which included a necrotic centre that has not previously been described. This case also highlights the need for a high index of clinical suspicion to achieve the correct histopathological interpretation.
