INTRODUCTION: Neurogenic tumors of the larynx are extremely rare, accounting for less than 1% of all benign laryngeal tumors. The lesions that have been described in current literature are located either in the supraglottis or subglottis, mainly affecting the pediatric population and associated with von Recklinghausen disease. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive study of an unusual case of an isolated neurofibroma of the glottis in an elderly patient with no history of neurofibromatosis. DISCUSSION: We discuss preoperative clues to the diagnosis, our surgical experience, and propose a theory of its pathogenesis originating from encapsulated nerve structures within the vocal fold.
