Abstract

Most polypi are small sessile lesions attached to the free edges of the true vocal cords. Their usual presenting symptom is hoarseness. Polypi may reach a large size and these can present with choking spells, stridor, and dyspnea. Occasionally, when the attachment is stalk-like, symptoms may be intermittent as the polyp flips into and out of the glottis. Although the potentially large size of laryngeal polypi is often mentioned, only a few of these cases have been reported. In this paper we describe two cases of gigantic laryngeal polypi, both of which presented with total obstruction of the airway.
