This excerpt has been provided in the absence of an abstract.

An excellent description of rheumatoid involvement of the cricoarytenoid joint appeared in Mackenzie's laryngological textbook (1) published in 1880, and case reports (2, 3) were published in periodicals of the same era. However, cricoarytenoid arthritis was thought to be a rare entity until recent reports (4, 5) called attention to the high prevalence in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Grossman, Martin, and Root (4) found evidence of arytenoid arthritis in one third of a group of 55 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, and Lofgren and Montgomery (5) noted arytenoid involvement in 26 per cent of 100 patients from an arthritis clinic.
