Hemangioma of the larynx in children

Hemangioma of the larynx in children

Vestnik Otorinolaringologii 1989(1): 28-31

Hemangiomas were diagnozed in 11 patients (4.6%) out of 235 children with chronic laryngeal stenoses of various etiology. The most frequent symptom was hoarse voice. The children examined were not older than 5 months. In 5 patients, laryngeal hemangiomas were associated with hemangiomas of other body compartments--most frequently on the skin of the face, neck or upper chest. Out of the 11 laryngeal hemangiomas 6 were located below vocal folds, 4 on gastric and aryepiglottic folds and only 1 on vocal folds. The first line method of treatment was cryosurgery. Local freezing was performed on 6 patients. They all were decannulated within 2 to 4 months after intervention. There children with disseminated hemangiomas of the face, neck and upper chest were exposed to radiotherapy. A year after, two of them were decannulated and the third one developed a postradiation scar below vocal cords. In 2 children when they were 2 or 3 years of age, laryngeal hemangiomas disappeared spontaneously without any treatment.
