Laryngeal papillomatosis
Laryngeal papillomatosis is the growth of numerous warty growths on the vocal cords. The disease is most common in young children. Laryngeal papillomatosis can be due to the baby contracting human papilloma virus (HPV) during birth through the vaginal canal from a mother with genital warts (which are due to HPV). Each year, about 300 infants are born with the virus on their vocal cords because of maternal transmission. Recurrences of laryngeal papillomatosis are, unfortunately, frequent. Remission may occur after several years.
