Abstract

Objective: We report a rare case of laryngeal myxoma.

Case report: Laryngeal myxomas are rare benign tumors of mesenchymal origin, to our knowledge only six have been reported in the English-language literature. We present the case of a woman seen in the ENT outpatient clinic with a lifelong history of dysphonia. On examination she was found to have bilateral swollen vocal cords. This was thought to represent Reinkes oedema. Pathological analysis after routine microlaryngoscopy showed this to be a vocal cord myxoma. Conclusion: We recommend excision of this lesion and long term follow-up.
