Se presenta un caso de papilomatosis laringotráqueobronquial, describiendo su clínica así como las exploraciones practicadas. Los broncogramas evidenciaron una serie de fallos lacunares y en la endoscopia se descubrió la existencia de formaciones polipoideas en todo el árbol tráqueo-bronquial. El estudio histológico confirmó el diagnóstico de papilomatosis. Dada la extensión del proceso, se instauró una terapéutica sintomática y se practicaron traqueoscopias repetidas con electrocoagulación de papilomas.

Tras la exposición del caso clínico, se discuten los problemas nosológicos, etiológicos, anatomoclínicos y terapéuticos de esta afección.


A case of bronchial-tracheal-laryngeal papillomatosis is presented, describing its clinical picture as well as the explorations carried out. The bronchograms indicated a series of lacunar failures and the existence of polypoid formations in all the trachealbronchial tree was discovered by endoscopy. The histological study confirmed the diagnosis of papillomatosis. Due to the extension of the process, symptomatic therapy was begun and repeated tracheoscopies were practised with electrocoagulation of the papillomas.

After the exposition of the clinical case, the nosological, etiological, anatomicoclinical and therapeutic problems of this affection are discussed.
