THE LARYNX, BRONCHI AND OESOPHAGUS

LEPROSY

The larynx is involved in less than half the cases of leprosy. The epiglottis and
ary-epiglottic folds become infiltrated and nodular, and later the lesions
ulcerate. Finally, scarring and contraction occur. Biopsy of the swelling will
differentiate the condition from tuberculosis and syphilis. Treatment is by a
course of sulphone which must be maintained for years.
