Laryngeal lymphangioma is extremely rare. We have been able to find only seventeen cases reported in world literature. We recently, treated a patient suffering from laryngeal lymphangioma in our department. The female patient, aged 36, complained of hoarseness for several months. Indirect laryngoscopy revealed a growth on her right false vocal cord. Under general anesthesia, tracheostomy and laryngofissure were performed for removal of this neoplasm. The tumor was microscopically diagnosed as lymphangioma. The symptoms disappeared after surgery and there has been no recurrence. The pertinent literature on this rare disease is reviewed.
