SA, Leonardo C. B. de; FERNANDES, José R C  and  MEIRELLES, Roberto Campos. Laryngeal chondroma: an atypical presentation. Rev. Col. Bras. Cir. [online]. 2006, vol.33, n.2, pp.126-127. ISSN 0100-6991.

The authors report a case of laryngeal chondroma , a rare benign larynx tumor in the cricoid and arytenoid cartilages. There are aproximately 250 cases previously described in literature. A male, 41 year-old patient, presented a severe and progressive dyspnea leading to tracheostomy. Direct microlaryngoscopy revealed arytenoid enlargement and subglottic stenosis and the endoscopical biopsy was inconclusive, since the tumor present a hard gnistency. We performed surgical excision by laringofissura and total resection of the tumor, with good result. The histopathological examination showed a chondroma with no malignance.

Keywords : Laryngeal neoplasms; Chondroma; Arytenoid cartilage.
