Laryngeal papillomatosis

Common Name(s)

Laryngeal papillomatosis

Laryngeal papillomatosis is a form of recurrent respiratory papillomatosis where tumors (papillomas) grow in the larynx (voice box).  Symptoms usually begin with hoarseness and/or a change in the voice. Some people may experience difficulty breathing (dyspnea) and/or experience other life-threatening complications if the papillomas block the airway. The tumors may vary in size and grow very quickly. They often grow back even when removed. Laryngeal papillomatosis  is caused by two types of human papilloma virus (HPV), called HPV 6 and HPV 11.

Integration of HPV6 and downregulation of AKR1C3 expression mark malignant transformation in a patient with juvenile-onset laryngeal papillomatosis.
 

Author(s): Christian Ulrich Huebbers, Simon Florian Preuss, Jutta Kolligs, Julia Vent, Markus Stenner, Ulrike Wieland, Steffi Silling, Uta Drebber, Ernst-Jan M Speel, Jens Peter Klussmann

Journal: PLoS ONE. 2013 ;8(2):e57207.

 

Juvenile-onset recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) is associated with low risk human papillomavirus (HPV) types 6 and 11. Malignant transformation has been reported solely for HPV11-associated RRP in 2-4% of all RRP-cases, but not for HPV6. The molecular mechanisms in the carcinogenesis ...
