Primary Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma of the larynx is rare, accounting for less than 1% of all laryngeal neoplasms. Fewer than 100 cases have been reported in the literature. Early symptoms are nonspecific and subtle, so confirmation of the diagnosis is difficult thereby leading to a delay in management. We hereby present a case of a 30 year old male with Non Hodgkin’s lymphoma of larynx who presented with hoarseness as the only complaint. In this case, intra operative assessment and histological interpretation was critical, and formed the basis of correct management in the form of radiotherapy.
