Pathology of Juvenile Papillomatosis

Juvenile papillomatosis is the commonest tumour of the upper respiratory tract in childhood.

The majority of cases arise in the larynx of young children.

Similar lesions rarely present in the soft palate, epiglottis and trachea.

Laryngeal papillomatosis may mimic asthma in the absence of symptoms of hoarseness, croup, or stridor.

It should be particularly considered in 2 to 4 year-old children with recurrent wheezing that is poorly responsive to aggressive therapy including oral corticosteroids.

Histologically benign it is characterized by multiple squamous papillomas with basal cell hyperplasia, parakeratosis and less often hyperkeratosis and koilocytosis.
