Abstract

We present a case of a granular cell tumour (GCT) in the larynx of a 9-yaer old boy. The literacy review confirmed that this would be the youngest patient reported in Sri Lanka. The histological diagnosis of GTC is emphasized as macroscopic appearance may confuse with viral papilomatosis of the larynx. In addition, we present a method of surgical treatment of the tumour, involving the hitherto unreported technique through laryngofissure excision and buccal mucosal graft to preserve the exact function of the larynx with complete excision of the tumour.
