Laryngeal schwannomas are rare benign encapsulated nerve sheath tumor, which are difficult to manage and a patient may require tracheostomy before definitive management. The present case report is of a 35-year-old female complaining of change in voice quality, snoring with infrequent apnea episodes, dyspnea more on exertion, and lying supine. The patient underwent complete excision using microdebrider-assisted transoral microlaryngoscopy, thus avoiding the need of imminent tracheostomy. Postoperative after 2 months, the patient had normal voice and vocal fold mobility with preserved laryngeal mucosa. Although a novel technique, it is quite effective and safe in the excision of laryngeal Schwannoma without injury to the surrounding structures.
