Illustrations of pathological conditions of the larynx


Small, coloured illustrations of larynxes showing various pathological conditions

These illustrations of a healthy or a diseased larynx can be inserted inside the velvet mouth and behind the tongue of the 'phantom larynx'. The model was used to teach students about the different diseases that affect this area. It was an attempt to replicate the view that a doctor would see when examining a patient.
