We report a case of an idiopathic acquired supraglottic web in an 83-year-old man. The web was managed with a combination of dilation and unilateral CO2 laser excision. Subsequent to removal, the web recurred three times; it was removed in the same fashion twice and left alone once. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a truly idiopathic acquired laryngeal web.
