Lipoma is a benign mesenchymal tumor. There are about 115 cases of laryngeal lipoma reported in literature, mostly in isolation. This case was a 52-year-old male who presented with hoarseness of voice and feeling of a lump in the throat for the past 18 months. Examination revealed a solitary huge mass over the left aryepiglottic fold. The tumor was excised using cold instruments with the help of endoscopic technique. There was no recurrence after 24 months of follow-up. With reference to this case, we have a review of literature and a brief discussion on various isolated cases of laryngeal and diffuse lipoma.
