Abstract Chondroma of the larynx is a rare tumor. Many textbooks devote just a few lines to it, while others fail to even mention it. The infrequency of this tumor is illustrated by Figi,1 who in 1932 reported that his examination of 600 malignant neoplasms of the larynx at the Mayo Clinic yielded only 6 lesions which could be classified as chondroma. In a study of 722 cases of benign tumors of the larynx, New2 found only 7 chondromas. A careful search of the literature by Radcliffe3 revealed that 83 proven cases of true cartilaginous tumors of the larynx had been recorded up to 1944. There have been isolated case reports since then, but the total recorded to date is still less than 100. Cartilaginous tumors were first described by Heusinger4 in 1822. Other early reports were as follows: Schwartz5 in 1886; Durand and Garel6 References 1. Figi, F. A.: Chondromas of the Larynx: Report of 6 Cases , Ann. Oto.
