11/14. Isolated laryngeal leishmaniasis in an immunocompetent patient: successful treatment with surgery.

    The localization of Leishmania spp. in the larynx is rare but it has recently been described in patients infected by human immunodeficiency virus (hiv). The normal treatment given is antimonials. We describe a case of isolated leishmaniasis in the larynx which was cured by surgery. Our patient was a 47-year-old man who had suffered visceral leishmaniasis in his childhood with no immunosuppression.

12/14. Laryngotracheoesophageal cleft: the anterior approach.

    Laryngotracheoesophageal cleft was reported by Richter in 1792 after he examined an infant at autopsy and found a common lumen of esophagus and laryngotrachea. The next case was not noted until 1949 by Finlay. A recent review shows 40 cases in the world literature to date. Successful surgical approaches to some of these problems have basically employed a lateral pharyngotomy technique. In the case presented herein, the exact pathology was obscured by a severe tetralogy of fallot and recurrent pneumonitis from a suspected high H-type tracheoesophageal fistula. The length of this cleft prompted an anterior approach with laryngo-fissure, cricoidotomy, and division of four tracheal rings for a complete and successful repair. Thorough endoscopy of all infants suspected of any laryngeal anomaly would yield an earlier diagnosis and opportunity for reconstruction of the cleft.

13/14. Laryngeal involvement during post kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis in india.

    Post kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis (PKDL) involving the mucus membranes is relatively rare on the Indian sub-continent. We describe 3 cases of PKDL presenting with hoarseness of voice. In one case the skin, nasal, oral, oropharyngeal and laryngeal mucosa had nodular and nodulo-ulcerative lesions; in the 2 other cases, genitalia and anorectal mucosa were also affected. Laryngoscopic examination revealed nodular lesions on the vocal cords. biopsy smear and culture confirmed their leishmanial origin.

14/14. Laryngeal malakoplakia.

    We report a case of malakoplakia of the epiglottis in a 45-year-old female patient. Only three cases of laryngeal malakoplakia have been reported in the world literature, one of which was associated with tracheal malakoplakia. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of isolated malakoplakia of the epiglottis. Malakoplakia, a rare granulomatous lesion, has been seen more frequently in the urinary tract. Other organs like the genito-urinary tract, testis, epididymis, lymph nodes, middle ear, nasopharynx, tonsil and retroperitoneal tissue have been also involved though less frequently.
