Amyloid is a term used to describe a collection of proteinaceous material that has certain microscopic characteristics. Amyloidosis of the larynx is a rare benign process but is the most common site for isolated amyloid deposits to occur in the head and neck. Three cases of localized laryngeal amyloidosis were identified with the supraglottic region as the major site of involvement in two of them. Hoarsness was the presenting symptom. High resolution computed tomography scan was used to evaluate the extension of desease. Endoscopic and open surgical approaches were used for management of the patients.
