Schwannomas of the larynx are rare lesions in the pediatric age group.
In this article, we report on the neuroimaging features of a schwannoma arising from the left aryepiglottic fold in an 8-year-old boy with a 6-month history of inspiratory dyspnea.
Neuroimaging showed a well-defined, avoid mass originating from the left aryepiglottic fold. The lesion was removed endoscopically.
Complete removal of laryngeal schwannomas is curative, and adjuvant treatment is not required. © 2007 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Head Neck, 2007
