The therapeutic method for laryngeal papilloma is still not definitely established. It is a general principle that the laryngeal papilloma should be surgically removed as much as possible. For the purpose, laser surgery has been used and therapeutic potency could be expected to some extent. However, since this disease is a high recurrence, especially in case of infant or child, it is easily induced to papillomatosis, resulting in the tracheal invasion.Here, in this paper a case of laryngeal papillomatosis is reported. The patient is 10 years old, and received frequent surgical operations without any success. For this case, medication with the traditional Chinese medicine has been performed, resulting in no recurrence.
