|Left Vocal Fold Granular Cell Tumor|
Pictured is a left vocal fold granular cell tumor. When this patient presented, the left vocal fold lesion was suspected to be either a mucoid cyst or polyp. But during surgery it became obvious that the lesion was infiltrative and adherent to the underlying lamina propria, unlike a cyst or polyp. This patient happened to be a professional singer, and underwent successful surgery to remove the lesion while preserving the voice. The lesion was biopsied and then ablated with very narrow margins using the pulsed KTP laser.
