This is the first case of laryngeal schwannoma that presented as a pedunculated tumor arising from the true vocal fold.

A 23-year-old man presented with a 2-year history of progressive hoarseness and an occasional choking sensation. Laryngofiberscopy revealed a large, yellowish-white, pedunculated, round mass in the glottis that moved with respiration (figure 1). Computed tomography (CT) with contrast enhancement indicated a homogeneously enhanced, pedunculated mass that originated from the right vocal fold (figure 2).
