Neurogenous tumours of the larynx are extremely uncommon. We present a rare case of schwannoma of the larynx. Clinical findings are presented together with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance images. The tumour was located in the right aryepiglottic fold of the larynx. CT showed a well defined and hypodense mass extending from the right aryepiglottic fold to the right vocal cord. The patient underwent an excision of the mass through a lateral thyrotomy and the tumour was completely removed. The diagnosis and treatment of this tumour are discussed.
