Schwannoma in larynx is a rare presentaion. Laryngeal schwannomas are characterstically slow growing benign tumour usually arising from false cord and aryepiglottic fold with globus sensation being the most common presentation. Seldom it can present as stridor which need immediate intervention for survival of the patient. We present a case of 53 year female who presented with stridor at emergency and emergency tracheostomy was done. This patient had a history of dysphagia to solid food, hoarseness of voice and symptoms of aspirations. 70 degree rigid endoscopy and CEMRI of neck was performed to see the extent of the laryngeal lesion causing stridor. Tumor was excised completely by external transcervical approach. Histopathological reports suggested this tumor as schwannoma. Large obstructive laryngeal schwannoma though a unusual presentation but with immediate tracheostomy, proper diagnostic work up and precise surgical approach can give excellent recovery and post operative outcome for the patient.
