Lipomas of the larynx are rare. When they do occur, they are important because some require that the surgeon perform a tracheotomy to prevent a fatal airway obstruction. We report a case of myxolipoma-that is, a lipoma with foci of myxomatous degeneration-of the epiglottis in a 56-year-old woman. We successfully treated the tumor with intubation and surgery; tracheotomy was not necessary. To the best of our knowledge, myxolipoma of the epiglottis in an adult has not been previously reported in the English-language literature.
