Objectives: In presenting a case of laryngeal schwannoma, the authors emphasize the difficulties in diagnosing this rare pathology and review treatment options. The recent literature concerning this benign tumour is reviewed. Materials and method: The authors present a case of laryngeal schwannoma in a 29 year old man, revealed by exertional inspiratory dyspnea. Results: The patient was treated by a conservative surgery with no recurrence after two years follow-up. Conclusion: CT scan and magnetic resonance imaging provide essentiel data on the spread of this benign tumour. The possibility of malignant change and recurrence warrant long term follow-up.
