We present a case report of a large epidermoid cyst of the larynx which was removed with direct laryngoscopy from an adult male patient complaining of dysphagia and hoarseness without dyspnea, for an over two month period. The interest in this case is on the large size and rare location of the cyst at the supraglottic region of the larynx, thus causing dysphagia and hoarseness without dyspnea.
