Abstract

Pyriform fossa hemangioma, especially of the cavernous type, is a rare case and very few such lesions have been encountered in general otolaryngological practice. We report such a lesion in a 36-year-old, middle-aged woman presenting with complaint of foreign body sensation in the throat. Examination revealed a hemangioma in the right pyriform fossa that was successfully managed using KTP-532 laser and bipolar cautery.
