[Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis. Case report].

Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) is a rare condition characterized by recurrent growth of papilloma in the respiratory tract. RRP is caused by human papilloma virus. Its incidence is 4 per 100,000 children. Vertical transmission of the virus during gestation or during delivery is the major route of contracting the disease in children. One hundred and thirty different human papilloma virus types have been identified. Types 6 and 11 are involved in RRP and type 11 develops more aggressive disease with recurrence and progression to the respiratory tract and also nasopharyngeal surface. We present a 7 year old boy with diagnosis of RRP based on radiology and endoscopy.
