Abstract

Laryngeal vascular leiomyomas are uncommon benign tumors that seldom recur following complete excision. The choice of excision procedure-via direct laryngoscopy or an open approach-is dictated by tumor size, the expected amount of blood loss, and any comorbidities the patient may have. We report an unusual case of a recurrent laryngeal vascular leiomyoma in a 64-year-old woman who also had a concurrent parathyroid adenoma and a history of breast carcinoma. A surgical resection via an external approach along with laser resection of a small glottic component was needed.
