Tumors arising from the minor salivary glands in the larynx are rare. The most common tumors occurring here are adenoid cystic carcinomas.1 Among the benign tumors, pleomorphic adenoma is the most common.1 We present a case of subglottic pleomorphic adenoma which was managed by endolaryngeal endoscopic CO2 laser surgery. Laser as a primary treatment modality for the treatment of subglottic pleomorphic adenomas has not been well-described, as only one case has been reported in literature using this modality.
