Title: Obstructive Laryngeal Schwannoma ? A Rare Tumor Excised Transorally
Laryngeal schwannomas are rare benign encapsulated nerve sheath tumor, which are difficult to manage. Due to their obstructive airway nature, a patient may require tracheostomy before definitive management. We report a case of middle aged female complaining of change in voice quality, snoring with frequent apnea episodes and dyspnea that is more on exertion, and lying supine. The patient underwent complete excision using microdebrider?assisted transoral microlaryngoscopy, thus avoiding the need of imminent tracheostomy. Postoperative after 2 months, the patient had normal voice and vocal fold mobility with preserved laryngeal mucosa. Although a novel technique, it is quite effective and safe in the excision of laryngeal Schwannoma without injury to the surrounding structures.
