• Amyloidosis involving the upper portion of the respiratory tract is an uncommon disorder that may occur as an isolated phenomenon or, more unusually, as part of a systemic amyloidosis. This case of a 66-year-old man with amyloidosis of the larynx and trachea illustrates some recently developed concepts and techniques in the diagnosis and management of this problem.
