Neurogenic neoplasm of the larynx is not common, and only 48 cases have been reported in the Japanese literature. The authors treated a 53-year-old man with schwannoma in the larynx. The tumor was located on the inside of the right arytenoid fold. When the mass was extirpated endoscopically, two fine nerve fibers were seen connected with the mass. These fibers were thought to be internal branches of the right superior laryngeal nerve. It was concluded that this tumor was derived from the superior laryngeal nerve. The 49 cases of laryngeal neurogenic tumor reported in Japan are analyzed statistically.
