Laryngeal paragangliomas are uncommon, usually benign neoplasms. The overwhelming majority of these tumors are supraglottic, arising from the superior laryngeal parasympathetic paraganglia. Few paragangliomas of the infraglottic region have been described. We describe the case of a 35-year-old man with a family history of carotid body tumors who presented with an infraglottic paraganglioma.
