Superselective Embolization in Two Cases of Laryngeal Paraganglioma.
Laryngeal paragangliomas, usually benign, are rare neoplasms typically originating in the superior laryngeal parasympathetic chain. There are approximately 70 reported cases in the literature.
Because of the highly vascular nature of this lesion, even needle biopsy may result in significant bleeding. We describe two patients with symptomatic laryngeal paragangliomas in whom superselective embolization was used to lessen the hazards of operative resection.
Benign paragangliomas are usually encountered by the otolaryngologist as glomus vagale tumors related to the middle ear or carotid body tumors and occurring in the neck. Laryngeal paragangliomas, per se, are rare.
