Abstract

Background:

Laryngeal dysplasia is an important pre-malignant lesion. In 2010, a consensus statement by ENT surgeons and pathologists was published outlining the management and follow up of patients with laryngeal dysplasia.

Objective:

After reviewing these guidelines, we noted the need for a flowchart for laryngologists to improve efficiency in managing dysplasia and encourage adherence to evidence-based protocols.

Result:

A diagram has been produced to aid other ENT units around the country.
