Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders

Treatments for RRP aside from surgery

12/01/2009

Question:

I was wondering if your department works with any treatments for RRP aside from surgery (MMR vaccine, cidovovir, etc). I am from Springboro, and have a pretty agressive RRP that comes back shortly after surgery, and am desperately seeking some help. Thanks.

Answer:

I know of no known, proven advances in treating RRP. However, an evaluation with one of our ENT physicians would be worthwhile- after a full evaluation, an appropriate discussion regarding options can occur.
