Laryngeal leishmaniasis is an unusual form of the disease. We report the case of a patient who consulted for dysphonia and dysphagia in a context of asthenia and weight loss. The patient had lesions that were suggestive of laryngeal cancer but were revealed to be leishmaniasis by histopathology examination and polymerase chain reaction. Treatment with amphotericin B and miltefosine permitted complete resolution of the lesions and no recurrence during the 18-month follow-up period.
