Abstract

A giant granuloma obstructing the upper airway in a 21-year-old male is described. It arose after an extreme psychological stress. The patient underwent microlaryngoscopic removal of the granuloma, with no recurrence. This case confirms the role of psychological stress in the pathogenesis of laryngeal granulomas, that can reach huge dimensions.
