Laryngeal granulomas are benign (noncancerous) masses that usually occur on the vocal processes of the arytenoids. Their presence on the right pyriform fossa with right arytenoid fixity is rarely encountered mimicking clinical symptoms and signs of malignancy larynx. We encountered a female with history of difficulty in swallowing food and pain in the throat. HRCT 1. Neck & thorax shows a mass lesion involving right side of laryngopharynx with cartilage and strap muscles invasion. On fiber optic laryngoscopy it was found deep ulcers on right pyriform fossa with right arytenoid fixity and biopsy taken. Histopathological examination shows inflammatory granulation tissue. Hence any suspected malignancy larynx should be thoroughly evaluated.
