Sarcoidosis is a chronic granulomatous disease of unknown pathogenesis. It can affect numerous organs but most commonly involves the respiratory tract. On rare occasions it only involves the larynx. We describe a case of isolated laryngeal sarcoidosis in a teenage girl with symptoms of hoarseness, snoring and dyspnoea. The diagnosis was supported by detection of granulomatous inflammation in a laryngeal biopsy. She was successfully treated by surgical excision of the granulomatous swellings of the arytenoids and epiglottis combined with inhaled corticosteroids.
