Cysts in the larynx are not uncommon and assume
importance due to their potential to compromise the
airway. A series of three cases of laryngeal cysts is
presented. Voice, swallowing, and breathing are the
prime functions served by the upper aerodigestive
tract, and the three cases presented here illustrate
how each of these functions can be interfered with
by the development of laryngeal cysts. Despite the
presence of overlapping symptoms, there were only
subtle symptoms at the onset such as globus sensation
(case 1), worsening asthma (case 2), and
vocal fatigue (case 3). This case series highlights
the importance of understanding these subtle symptoms
and the need for a thorough search for these
benign but offending laryngeal cysts.
