Abstract

Diffuse upper respiratory hemangiomas are extremely rare lesions. Unlike the much more common congenital subglottic hemangiomas, diffuse upper respiratory hemangiomas do not resolve spontaneously and may prove quite recalcitrant to conventional forms of therapy. Superselective embolization, a highly successful technique for the management of head and neck vascular lesions, was used to effectively control an obstinate laryngotracheal hemangioma. Super selective embolization appears to provide yet another viable therapeutic Option in the management of laryngeal hemangiomas.
