Abstract

An apparently healthy 31-year-old man presented with dysphonia. Laryngoscopy revealed a mass at the right side of epiglottis. He underwent a CT examination after intravenous injection of a iodinated contrast agent and this showed the presence of a paralaryngeal mass with rim enhancement. The diagnosis of laryngopyocele was made. Treatment consisted of endoscopic laser surgery, confirming the diagnosis and resolving the symptomatology
