Introduction: Granular cell tumors (GCTs) are an uncommon neoplasm, originating in any part of the body. The most common sites of origin are the head and neck, while the larynx is a relatively uncommon location. Case report: We report an uncommon case of a 27–year-old man who presented persistent hoarseness of voice for 3 months. Endoscopic laryngeal examination revealed a mucosal growth with smooth surface along the right vocal cord. The patient was treated by surgical resection under fine dissection by microlaryngoscopy. Conclusion: Our case demonstrates various differential diagnoses possible in laryngeal neoplasms. It also shows that immunocytochemistry plays an important role in differential diagnosis.
