This case report presents a 72-year-old man with longstanding recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP). He has undergone multiple procedures for the condition, including an apparent urgent surgical airway followed by tracheoplasty repair. Modern management of complicated RRP should include both local debulking and systemic approaches. Systemic bevacizumab (Avastin) has shown some initial success as an effective treatment option, in addition to other medications such as pembrolizumab. Other future care strategies may include an HPV vaccination and other adjuvants; vaccination has been reported to have the possibility of drastically reducing the incidence of RRP.
