Abstract

Neuretogenous tumours of the larynx are extremely uncommon. We present a case of schwannoma of the larynx and review pertinent data in the literature. Laryngeal schwannoma was discovered in a 80-year-old woman who complained of persistent dysphonia. The histological findings leading to diagnosis together with the therapeutic surgical procedure are described. There was no postoperative complication and functional outcome was excellent at six months follow-up, demonstrating that conservative surgery is required for this type of disease. Conservative surgery provides excellent results. Although very rare, schwannoma should be taken into consideration in the differential diagnosis of any laryngeal mass.
