Squamous Cell Neoplasms of the Larynx
Squamous cell papillomas are frequent in the larynx of adults. They also present in children where, because of the much narrower diameter of the airway, the symptoms are more serious and treatment is more urgent and difficult. The pathological changes are, however, similar at all ages. By far the commonest site of occurrence of squamous papilloma of the larynx is the vocal cord and the anterior half of the cord is more frequently affected than the posterior.
