Abstract

Contact endoscopy (C.E) of the vocal cord is a new technique for diagnosis of lesions in the vocal cords. This technique is very easy and provides immediate results of the cytological structure of the suspected lesion, assisting in decision-making regarding treatment and follow-up. In the last three years we began using C.E. This study presents our experience with six patients and a review the literature. The C.E technique is an important tool for early diagnosis of lesions of the vocal cord. We believe that in the future, with the technical development of C. E., it will be used routinely not only in the larynx but also in other areas of the body.
