Osteomas, which are a common entity in the head and neck, most commonly involve the skull and facial bones. They are benign, typically slow-growing tumors composed of densely sclerotic, well-circumscribed bone. They are commonly found in the sinonasal tract and have also been reported in the tongue and temporal bone.1-4 In the larynx, however, osteoma is an extremely rare entity. To our knowledge, only 1 other case of an osteoma of the larynx has been reported in the literature.5
