Strictures in the food passage are well known late complication of corrosive injury. We hereby report a rare case of post corrosive ingestion laryngopharyngeal stenosis. The epiglottis was retroverted and adhered on both lateral pharyngeal walls. Peroral direct laryngoscopy with microscope was used and Epiglottectomy was done with the help of diathermy and microlaryngeal instruments. The etio-pathogenesis, clinical presentation and treatment modalities available are being discussed.
