Cartilaginous lesions of the larynx are uncommon, approximately 250 cases being documented in the literature. In general, these tumours grow slowly, exhibiting only local aggressiveness. Distant metastases are rare. Up until now CT has been the best diagnostic tool for the evaluation of these tumours because it demonstrates intratumoral calcification so well. To the best of our knowledge there are no reports of the use of MRI for these lesions. Three cases of cartilaginous laryngeal tumours are presented, emphasizing the MRI features.
