Abstract

GUIDOLIN, Fernanda; MAGRO, Carlos Eduardo; BEZERRA NETO, Francisco  and  SKARE, Thelma L.. Wegener's granulomatosis and subglottic stenosis: case description. Rev. Bras. Otorrinolaringol. [online]. 2004, vol.70, n.3, pp.419-422. ISSN 0034-7299.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-72992004000300021.

We describe a patient with Wegener Granulomatosis being treated with steroids and cyclofosfamide that developed progressive dyspnea and hoarseness despite of treatment. Investigation showed a subglotic stenosis. The dyspnea was relieved by tracheotomy. We discuss the differential diagnosis as well as a number of treatment modalities in patients with Wegener granulomatosis and subglottic stenosis.
