Laryngocele A Review

Laryngocele is a rare condition characterized by benign dilatation of laryngeal saccule. It may be asymptomatic in a majority of patients, but could present with neck swelling, hoarseness, cough and stridor. Clinically three types of Laryngocele have been documented i.e. Inter-nal, External and Combined. Old published lit-erature suggests that this condition is common in glass blowers. This article attempts to re-view published literature in the scenario of au-thor’s experience with 3 cases.
