Chondromas are among the rare connective-tissue tumors of the larynx.1 Gatewood,2 in 1942, reported two cases of this laryngeal tumor and brought the literature up to date with a total of 83. Since then several other cases have been published. Ryan and Zizmor3 reported another in 1949, which demonstrated an additional roentgenographic technique for detecting these tumors. Link,4 in 1949, augmented the total of reported cases of this tumor to 88.

The purpose of this paper is to add to the literature an unusual case in which a recurrence appeared 28 years after the original removal.
