Granular cell tumors, also called Abrikossoff tumors, are benign, slowly growing neoplasms. They may occur anywhere in the body, but head and neck accounts to 45% - 65% of these cases. The most common site is the tongue. Larynx is relatively an uncommon location for these tumours, accounting for approximately three to 10 per cent of the reported cases. Laryngeal granular cell tumour is extremely rare accounting for only 19 reported cases under the age of 17 years. As many as 10% of patients experience multifocal synchronous or metachronous tumors. We present a rare case report of granular cell tumour of the larynx.
