Abstract

A thirty-year-old male presented with progressive hoarseness and dysphagia for solids. Fibre optic laryngoscopy showed a right supraglottic mass. Subsequent CT imaging showed the location and extent of the mass. Biopsy revealed a Paraganglioma with cytokeratin negative and chromogranin positive cells. The mass was subsequently removed without complications. Follow up also showed no complications. Hoarseness and dysphagia resolved following tumour excision.
