Neurogenic tumors of the larynx, especially the schwannomas are rare. Hence, we report a case of a schwannoma in a 15-year-old male child, which was excised endoscopically. The goal of this report is to advert to this rare disease and to review and discuss diagnostic methods and treatment options. The definite diagnosis is histopathological examination. Endoscopic resection for smaller lesions and external approaches for larger lesions are recommended treatment options, and adjuvant treatment is not required.
