Reported here for the first time is a case of subglottic neurofibroma in an infant which was removed by laryngofissure. Neurofibromas are ubiquitous in distribution, but very rare in the larynx and also extremely rare in infancy. Only 9 cases had been reported in children under 9 years of age. In the present case, H.T., a boy aged 2 years and 7 months, complaining of inspiratory stridor since the beginning of December 1985, was admitted to our hospital on Jan. 21, 1986. The tumor was completely removed by laryngofissure and pathological diagnosis showed it to be a neurofibroma. Laryngeal neurofriboma cases are reviewed and discussed.
