Subglottic leiomyoma is a rare disease. We encountered such a tumor in a 7-year-old boy who was transferred to our hospital with respiratory distress and hoarseness of 2 week's duration. Stridor was noted and flexible fiberoscopy revealed a huge mass over the subglottis. The tumor was removed endoscopically. Pathologic examination disclosed a leiomyoma. The patient recovered well and no recurrence was noted during 17 months of follow-up. Although subglottic leiomyoma is rare, it should be included in the differential diagnosis of a subglottic tumor.
