Introduction: Oncocytic cysts of the larynx are rare, benign, slow-growing tumours lined mostly or entirely by oncocytes. Oncocytic lesions are very usual in the larynx, seen in the lining of laryngeal cysts that affect the ventricles or false vocal cords. Since oncocytic cysts can occur anywhere in the larynx except the free edge of the actual vocal cord, barren of glandular epithelium, they are almost often solitary, involving an isolated spot.
Case Presentation: A 55 year old gentleman presented in the ENT OPD with difficulty breathing, especially when lying down in the past two months. The gentleman had been having hoarseness of voice for 6months. A postoperative fibreoptic laryngoscope was done, which revealed mild oedema in the supraglottic region with normal vocal cord function. Histopathology suggested of benign oncocytic laryngeal cyst that arises from the ventricle.
Conclusion: It is respiratory or glandular salivary epithelial metaplasia with no risk of malignancy, though recurrence after excision is possible. Hoarseness of voice is the most common symptom, but acute and chronic dyspnea can also occur.
