Caption

Oedema of larynx. Artwork of sections through a larynx with and without swelling. The bottom image shows a healthy larynx in transverse (axial) section from above. The middle image (axial section) shows oedema (swelling caused by fluid accumulation). The swelling is in the mucous tissue of the epiglottis, just above the vocal folds (vocal cords). The top image is a coronal (vertical) section, with swelling present. Swelling such as this is known as laryngeal oedema and oedema glottidis. If the swelling increases, it could block the airway and can be fatal. See also C016/6528 and C016/6529.
