Abstract

Granular cell tumors are uncommon neoplasms of the head and neck that usually involve the tongue. The larynx is an atypical site of involvement in adults and a rare site in children. We report two cases of subglottic granular cell tumors, one in a 10-year-old boy and the other in a 6-year-old girl. Although both were initially misdiagnosed as having asthma, radiologic, laryngoscopic, and histologic evaluation of the obstructions eventually furnished the correct diagnosis. The patients were successfully treated by surgical excision of their subglottic masses. The history, presentation, pathologic findings, management, and prognosis of this rare pediatric laryngeal tumor are explored.
