Longstanding recurrent paresis of the left false vocal cord secondary to a schwannoma relieved with laryngoscopic tumor removal

Longstanding recurrent paresis of the left false vocal cord secondary to a schwannoma relieved... A rare case of schwannoma of the larynx with recurrent nerve paresis is presented. Clinical findings are presented together with those of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The tumor was located in the left false vocal cord and measured 3 cm in diameter, enhancing the movement of the vocal cord and involving also the fossa piriformis. The MRI showed a well defined and hypodense mass extending from the left false vocal cord, the aryepiglottic fold to the left vocal cord. The patient underwent an excision of the mass through a laryngoscope and the tumor was completely removed; the recurrent nerve paresis then subsided. The diagnosis and treatment of this tumor are discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

A rare case of schwannoma of the larynx with recurrent nerve paresis is presented. Clinical findings are presented together with those of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The tumor was located in the left false vocal cord and measured 3 cm in diameter, enhancing the movement of the vocal cord and involving also the fossa piriformis. The MRI showed a well defined and hypodense mass extending from the left false vocal cord, the aryepiglottic fold to the left vocal cord. The patient underwent an excision of the mass through a laryngoscope and the tumor was completely removed; the recurrent nerve paresis then subsided. The diagnosis and treatment of this tumor are discussed.
