Introduction: Post laryngectomy the trachea is separated from the esophagus and a permanent opening is created at the anterior part of the neck. Stomal site complications include bleeding, pharyngocutaneous fistula, stomal crusting, stomal stenosis, voice prosthesis dislodgement, acute airway obstruction of which bleeding is one of the most common complications.
Case Report: We report a case of 56 year old male who presented with a late stomal site bleed.
Discussion: Many early and late complications if left undiagnosed can pose a danger in a post-operative laryngectomy patient. Through this case report we emphasize that the rarely seen cause must be kept in mind as a differential diagnosis in case of a post laryngectomy stomal site bleed.
