A 47-year-old nonsmoker, HIV-negative patient presented with dry cough, breathlessness, hoarseness of voice and low-grade fever of 6 months duration. His chest X-ray was normal. CT scan of the chest [Figure 1] revealed irregularity of the anterior tracheal mucosa. Bronchoscopy was done and this showed [Figure 2] ulcerated vocal cords and pseudomembrane formation of the lining mucosa of the trachea and bronchi.
