    ABSTRACT: Recurrent laryngeal papillomatosis (RRLP) which is characterized by wart like growths in the larynx is a rare benign disease seen in children and young adults and a few cases are reported in old aged adults. The spread of RRLP throughout the respiratory tract occurs rarely; and involvement of the distal bronchi, bronchioles, and lung parenchyma is very rare. We report a case of tracheobronchial and pulmonary spread of RRLP in a 70-year-old man after two previous surgeries. Despite the rarity of this disease in adults, the correct diagnosis may be suggested by a characteristic combination of clinical, radiographic, and pathologic features.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a 73 years old male with three weeks history of intermittent hemoptysis, dysphagia, dyspnea, stridor, and suffocations sensation. By means of fibrotic bronchoscopic examination, the cause was found to be a leech in the glottis. It was removed by injection of 4 ml lidocaine 2%. Infestation into the respiratory tract by a leech may become lethal because of hypoxia and death secondary to airway obstruction. A high index of suspicion of leech infestation sould be considered in patients presenting with hemoptysis, hoarseness and respiratory distress and a history of recent contact with fresh water streams.
