As patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection are living longer, the differential diagnosis of stridor in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients should be broadened to include malignancies in addition to the common causes of infections and functional airway abnormalities. Herein, we describe a 50-year-old woman with AIDS who presented with stridor secondary to supraglottic squamous cell carcinoma.
