Mesenchymal hamartoma of the larynx: A rare case report and review of literature

Jumana A. Amir, Salwa S. Sheikh


Hamartoma of the larynx is a rare benign developmental anomaly that must be distinguished from other neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions of the larynx. Most cases come to medical attention due to symptoms related to airway obstruction. Only one case is reported in literature where the lesion was associated with vocal cord paralysis. We herein, present a 68 years old woman who was admitted to the hospital with hoarseness, dysphagia, and left vocal cord paralysis. A laryngeal lesion was identified and on biopsy was diagnosed to be mesenchymal hamartoma. Although it was incompletely excised, the patient has no evidence of recurrence or relapse of her symptoms seven years post-operatively.
