The first description of chondroma of the larynx was made by Heusinger1 in 1822, and the first complete study, of 27 recorded cases, by Alexander2 in 1900. Moore3 reviewed the cases reported in the literature from this date to 1925 and added 35 cases, bringing the total number up to 62. Clerf4 reported 1 case before the American Laryngological Association and reviewed 6 others which were recorded between 1925 and 1929. In 1932 Figi5 reported 6 cases which had been studied at the Mayo Clinic. He said that these, with 2 other recorded cases, made a total of 77. Then, in 1941, Orton6 reported 1 case and reviewed the literature up to date. In his bibliography he referred to 4 additional cases, which included 1 reported by Graham in 1934, 2 by Tobeck in 1939 and 1 by Equen and associates in 1940. So
