Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

A pseudotumour represents a lesion that masquerades as a malignant neoplasm. We present an unusual case where the appearance of a tumour was the result of chronic inflammation stimulated by the presence of food matter. This inflammatory reaction resulted in upper airway obstruction associated with a mass lesion and vocal fold palsy.
