Mucosa- associated Lymphoid Tissue (MALT) Lymphoma is a Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. This marginal zone lymphoma is typically a low-grade neoplasm. Primary Laryngeal MALT Lymphoma is an extremely rare entity. No case has been reported from India till now. We present a case of Laryngeal MALT Lymphoma in a 49 year old lady with complain of progressive hoarseness of voice since 6 months and history of orbital pseudo-tumour. MALT Lymphoma was diagnosed after biopsy and managed with 6 cycles of R-Benda Chemotherapy. The patient has had uneventful follow-up for past 3 years. Primary MALT lymphoma is a rare but curable disease and clinicians should keep it in mind while forming differential diagnosis for a suspicious mass during laryngeal evaluation.
