Abstract
Laryngeal granuloma is a localized inframmatory response to mucosal loss caused by endolaryngeal trauma. Endotracheal intubation is the most common cause of laryngeal granuloma. Mucosal loss is followed by ulceration and infection and then by an overproduction of reactive granuloma tissue. Granuloma formation is most frequent on the posterior one third of the vocal cord. The authors experienced two cases of laryngeal granuloma after endotracheal intubation for general anesthesia.
