Uvulectomy; Symptomatic relief for chronic irritating cough and obstrutive apnoea syndrome in long uvula
Keywords:chronic cough, elongated uvula, obstructive apnea syndrome, uvulectomy
An elongated uvula can flop down and touch various structures in upper airway in the oropharyngeal junction and cause mechanical irritation.1 Here we present a case report of a patient with long uvula with respiratory tract obstruction leading to chronic cough and obstructive apnoea syndrome (OSA), in which uvulectomy was carried out for symptomatic relief.
