A 68-YEAR-OLD man presented with a 2-month history of hoarseness. He did not smoke or consume alcohol. Stroboscopic evaluation of his larynx revealed a smooth-surfaced bulging mass, without mucosal waves, over the middle third of the right vocal cord (Figure 1). Physical examinations revealed that there were no palpable masses or lymphadenopathy. Microlaryngoscopy was performed with the patient under general anesthesia.
