Papillary Cystadenoma of Larynx: A Case Report
ABSTRACT

An uncommon clinical entity of papillary cystadenoma of the larynx in a lady of 37-year-old is presented. The diagnosis after clinical examination was achieved by video-stroboscopy, CT scan of the neck, biopsy and histopathological examination. This case study emphasizes the importance of recognition of this lesion by the clinician as the differential diagnosis includes lesions with similar clinical appearance.
