Abstract

Dysphagia is a commonly encountered symptom in hospital Otolaryngology departments, often requiring further investigation and treatment. We report a cause of dysphagia not previously documented in the medical literature; new onset larygo-pharyngeal fistula felt to be a delayed complication of curative radiotherapy for a glottic carcinoma, thirteen years previously.
