Myxoma is a rare benign mesenchymal tumor, and occurs most commonly in the mandible and maxilla in the head and neck region. Myxoma of the larynx is extremely rare and is frequently misdiagnosed as a vocal polyp. We report a myxoma arising from the right vocal fold presented with a 3 years history of intermittent dysphonia in a 42-year-old female who was pre diagnosed as an intracordal cyst.
