Abstract
Neurilemmoma is a relatively rare benign tumor which may be derived from nerve sheath of the peripheral, sym-pathetic and cranial nerve except the optic nerve and olfactory nerve. And it is a characteristically solitary and well-encapsulated mass. About 25% of neurilemmoma occurs in the head and neck region and the acoustic nerve is most frequently involved, but neurilemmoma of the larynx is rare. Recently, we experienced a case of neurilemmoma oc-curred in the right aryepiglottic fold of the larynx. The tumor was successfully removed by transoral approach un-der direct laryngoscope. So we report this case with literature review.
Key Words: Neurilemmoma, Larynx
