The article reports on the case of a 70-year-old woman who presented with stridor because of laryngeal hematoma. She came to emergency department of a hospital with a five-day history of weakness and fatigue related to sore throat, cough and increasing dyspnea. Flexible nasendoscopy showed a diffuse swelling of the right supraglottis and glottis with generalized edema of the laryngeal inlet. She was diagnosed to have acute myeloid leukemia.
