A case of intractable juvenile laryngo-tracheal papillomatosis is reported. A 1-year-old girl with hoarseness was referred to our hospital in May,1995. After tracheostomy, she was treated by local injection of interferon (IFN) combined with laser surgery. Recurrent growth of tracheal papillomas was rapid and widespread, and surgical removal was needed to maintain an airway. Surgical treatment was repeated 45 times in 1 year and 7 months. Even with additional systemic administration of IFN therapy, it was hard to control the papilloma. Human papillomavirus (HPV) type 6 was detected in this case. We have presented this case to seek other opinions on more effective therapy.
