Granular cell tumors are rare head and neck tumors and not a common presentation in larynx. We present a young boy of 12 years attending with hoarseness of voice. Clinical examination showed a well-defined lesion on the vocal process of the left vocal cord which was excised completely under operating microscope. The biopsy report came as histological surprise as granular cell tumor. The case is presented for its rarity of the lesion in the unusual site of the larynx.
