We describe the case of a 77-year-old man who presented with hemoptysis secondary to laryngeal ulceration caused by the inadvertent misuse of alendronate.
Six patients in our series had posterior laryngeal ulceration. Two cases proved to be those of chronic non specific inflammation and 4 cases had chronic granulomatous inflammation.
Three of these patients also had laryngeal lesions; one of the three had a large laryngeal ulceration and bullae that caused a laryngeal stenosis and necessitated a tracheostomy.
