Abstract

Laryngocele is a rare benign dilatation of the laryngeal saccule, which is filled with air. Prevalence of laryngocele is five times higher in men; its aetiology is still unclear which includes some congenital and acquired conditions. In this study we have presented a case of 19 year-old-boy, an oboe player, who was observed with a bilateral swelling of the neck and after undertaking the Otorhinolaryngological examination, it revealed a bilateral painless mass in the neck that increased in size and also Computed tomography (CT) and histopathological report demonstrated it as laryngocele. We have performed bilateral cervical approach and removed the laryngoceles. We have reported rare association of laryngocele with laryngeal carcinoma, especially supraglottic carcinoma in this study
