Abstract

A variety of systemic diseases may manifest with laryngeal symptoms. Cricoarytenoid arthritis with or without limitation of vocal fold motion is an example. It has been described in up to 25% of rheumatoid patients. Ankylosing spondylitis is classified among the seronegative spondylarthritides. Besides its systemic features, rare reports of cricoarytenoid involvement have been published. Six previous cases reported have been characterized by a long history of ankylosing spondylitis before the cricoarytenoid joint involvement occurred. We describe only the seventh case of cricoarytenoid arthritis secondary to ankylosing spondylitis and the first patient (to our knowledge) to present with bilateral vocal fold fixation as the initial presenting symptom.
