Laryngeal neurofibroma (LNF) is an unusual tumour and only approximately two dozen cases have been reported previously. Isolated LNF not associated with von Recklinghausen's disease is even more unusual. According to a review of the available literature, the case presented is the first bilateral one and the first originating from the ventricles. The tumour was removed completely by microlaryngoscopy without tracheostomy. The macroscopic and light macroscopic findings are presented and a review of the literature on neurogenic tumours in the larynx is presented.
