Abstract

We are reporting a rare case of laryngeal sialolipoma in a 66-year-old male affected by Parkinson's disease. He was evaluated for dysarthria and swallowing disorders during which a swelling of the left ventricular fold, was always present and enlarged over a span of six months. Surgical removal of the left ventricular fold was performed. Microscopic examination, showed a circumscribed mass with organoid seromucous glands surrounded by numerous mature adipocytes, separated from the parenchyma and fatty tissue by dense fibrous tissue. This mass fulfilled the diagnostic criteria of sialolipoma. Sialolipomas can develop in a variety of sites in which there is both adipose and salivary gland tissue. To our knowledge, this is the first case of sialolipoma arising in the larynx.
