What is a laryngeal papilloma?

Laryngeal papillomas are viral-induced growths that usually occur on the vocal cords and surrounding structures. The mainstay of treatment is surgically excision with a goal of attaining an unobstructed airway and secondarily an adequate voice.

Your child will be treated through our Voice & Velopharyngeal Dysfunction Center, a subspecialty clinic in the Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Enhancement. Our purpose is to fully evaluate children with voice disorders and/or disorders of the velopharyngeal closure.

After making an accurate diagnosis, recommendations are made for management of the problem, which may include voice/speech therapy, medical treatment, as well as surgical intervention. At Children's, communication with your referring physician and/or speech clinician is routinely performed.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
