Aspergillosis is an inflammatory fungal infection rarely affecting larynx. There are, invariably, certain risk factors which may predispose to fungal infections, such as immune deficiency states, use of inhaled or systemic steroids, and long and continuous use of antibiotics. Primary aspergillosis in an immunocompetent individual is very rare. A case report of such patient is presented in this article. Treatment with voriconazole led to complete resolution of aspergillosis.
