Candidiasis of the larynx is rare and often related to immunocompromised hosts. We here report a case of laryngeal candidiasis in an immunocompetent infant. The diagnosis was obtained by direct fibre-optic laryngoscopy with specimens submitted for culture. He received anti-fungal medication and was quite well at 1-year follow up. The pertinent literature is also reviewed.
