Primary laryngeal aspergillosis is exceptionally rare, and only nineteen cases have been reported in the literature. It is more comonly sen as a part of a wider infection involving the respiratory system in an imunocompromised host. We present here one case of primary laryngeal aspergillosis without any other airway tract extension and without any generalized imune deficit in a 58-year-old man. Direct laryngoscopy and biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of aspergillosis. (Korean J Otolaryngol 2002; 45:422-4)
