Neurofibroma is a benign tumor rarely seen in the larynx. It is a peripheral nerve sheath tumor arising from the fibrous covering of peripheral nerve. Peripheral nerve sheath tumors include schwannomas (neuromas or neurilemmomas) and neurofibromas. The presenting symptoms in laryngeal neurofibroma may be a change in voice, dysphagia, dyspnea, or globus sensation depending on the site and size of the tumor. The most common site of neurofibroma reported in the larynx is the supraglottis. We report a case of neurofibroma of the glottis, which is an uncommon location for this rare tumor. The patient underwent microlaryngoscopic excision of the tumor and histopathological examination including immunohistochemistry which confirmed the diagnosis of neurofibroma.
