Papilloma Virus

(syn. recurrent respiratory papilloma, RRP, laryngeal papillomatosis, vocal fold papilloma)

papilloma under white light
Papilloma (red tissue) with typical berry-like structure of its surface. Image recorded in high resolution transnasal flexible endoscopy (white light).

papilloma under NBI
Same papilloma, now seen with NBI (narrow-band imaging). Contrast enhancement for easier detection of affected tissue regions.

papilloma during KTP laser treatment
Same papilloma, now treated in the office in an awake patient with a transnasally routed flexible endoscope. In this painless procedure, a tiny laser fiber pulses the laser flashes onto the papilloma. The papilloma is locally coagulated and will fall off after time.
