The first report of a case of hemangioma of the larynx was made by Mackenzie1 in 1864. Twenty-four years later Wolfenden2 tabulated 11 cases from the literature and added a twelfth. Irwin Moore3 found 68 cases in a survey of the literature up to 1923; in addition he recorded 8 cases of lymphangioma. Since that time, no survey has been reported.
In the present survey I have excluded 3 case reports, those of Nicolsky,4 Resser5 and Collet,6 because the publications were not available. Also excluded are reports of lymphangioma and tumors classed as hemangioendothelioma or otherwise indicated as cancerous. I have been able to find 55 additional instances of laryngeal hemangioma in the literature to date to add to the 68 tabulated by Moore, making a total of 123. Included in this number are single cases reported by Wolf,7 Penna,8 Quix,9 Jones,10 Raaflaub,11 Bernhardt,12 Hückel,13 Altrichter,14 Kawai,15 Berendes,16 Suehs and
