A Case of a Subglottic Stone

Sang Hyun Nam, Kyoung Rai Cho

Abstract


A 50-year-old woman visited our clinic, complaining of a long-term foreign body sensation in her throat. Laryngeal examination revealed a subglottic nodular lesion posterior to the anterior commissure. Her laboratory data were within normal range and there was no particular abnormality in her history. A 2-mm sized stone was extracted after incising the nodule. The surrounding nodular tissue was removed carefully. The patient recovered completely after the surgery. This is the first case of a subglottic laryngeal stone reported in an English-language journal.
