Laryngeal schwannomas are extremely uncommon. We present a case of bulky supraglottic schwannoma with involvement of the preepiglottic and superior paraglottic spaces. Clinical findings, computed tomography and magnetic resonance images are presented. These characteristics are typical, however not specific to schwannomas. For definitive diagnosis, histology and immunohistochemistry are necessary. We present an external mini-invasive approach that allowed us to both obtain diagnosis and provide definitive treatment for this kind of voluminous laryngeal tumour. © 2017, Pacini Editore S.p.A.
