Neuroendocrine tumors of the larynx are rare, comprising only about 0.5% of laryngeal tumors. These tumors are characterized by pathological and biological heterogeneity. Well differentiated carcinoid tumor is the rarest variety of laryngeal neuroendocrine neoplasms. This tumor most commonly appears as a submucosal lesion of the supraglottic larynx. As per our knowledge, this tumor has never been reported in the subglottis. In this article we describe a rare case of a well-differentiated carcinoid tumor of the larynx involving the subglottis.
