Abstract

Objective: Rare disease. Background: Fibroepithelial polyp, a common type of tumor in the skin and genitourinary tract, is very rare in the respiratory tract. We describe clinical, radiologic, and histological features of a fibroepithelial polyp as a rare cause of an epiglottic mass in a child. Case Report: An 11-year-old female presented with a 2-month history of sore throat and dysphagia. Flexible laryngoscopy and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) revealed a mass on the lingual surface of the epiglottis. The mass was removed using a carbon dioxide laser and was confirmed histologically as a fibroepithelial polyp. Conclusions: Fibroepithelial polyp, although uncommon, should be considered in the differential diagnosis of epiglottic mass in children.
