Aim: The goal of this study was to document a rare case of lobular capillary hemangioma of the hypopharynx to create awareness among practitioners. Background: Lobular capillary hemangioma (LCH) is a benign, rapidly growing vascular proliferation that presents as a hemorrhagic, red to purple, sessile, or pedunculated mass. They are present most commonly on the cutaneous and mucosal surfaces, such as the gingiva, lips, fingers, and face. It occurs very rarely in the hypopharynx. Case description: We present a case of lobular capillary hemangioma of the left pyriform fossa in a 50 year old female who underwent micro-laryngoscopic excision, with no follow-up complications or recurrence. Conclusion: The present study describes LCH of the hypopharynx, which is an uncommon pathology in terms of the site of lesion in the practice of otolaryngology. Clinical significance: This case study illustrates the importance of documentation of such a rare case of LCH to create awareness among practitioners as surgery in this location is challenging due to the risk of bleeding and airway management and demands surgical expertise.
