The authors report the case of a patient of 67 years, an active teacher active with no relevant history, which noticed several months ago, a gradually progressive dysphonia, though not major (G1R2B0). The stroboscopic examination which proved extremely difficult, could only demonstrate normal laryngeal mobility, while the left ventricular band and left vocal fold appeared affected by a subepithelial tumoral aspect, appearing as a regular swelling. These data were confirmed by naso-fibroscopy, and later by computed tomography. Endoscopy, which was also extremely difficult, brought about the diagnosis of schwannoma in the region of the left ventricular band. We will discuss the nosology of this lesion, particularly thanks to Kleinsasser, and the surgical management that can be offered.
