  Introduction: Typical laryngeal carcinoid tumor, only 14 cases of which have been reported so far, is one of the rarest neuroendocrine tumors of the larynx. In all these cases supraglottic area was involved. Wide local excision is the treatment of choice.

  Case Report: This article represents a 68-year-old man who presented with progressive hoarseness since 6 months ago. Indirect laryngoscopy showed an exophytic mass in the right supraglottic area. Direct laryngoscopy and biopsy were performed. Pathologic findings were compatible with a typical carcinoid tumor.

  Conclusion: Owing to different biological behaviors and special treatment modality, accurate diagnosis of neuroendocrine neoplasms of the larynx is very important. When the surgeon is suspicious about the presence of these tumors, special immunohistochemical staining is essential to confirm the diagnosis.
