Thyroglossal duct cysts ore the most common nonodontogenic cysts to occur in the neck, and they often are situated in close proximity to the larynx. Despite this, they almost never present ns an intrnlaryngeal mass. Three cases nre cited in which intralaryngenl examination suggested that a larynx lesion was present. In two cases, a submucosal supraglottic mass was seen, while in the third case, the thyroid cartilage was eroded and a laryngeal malignancy was suspected. The role of CT in diagnosing and mnpping these tumors is discussed.
