Fibrous histiocytoma of larynx is a rare entity. We herein present a 35-year-old female of benign fibrous histiocytoma of larynx with severe airway obstruction that requiring urgent endotracheal intubation followed by tracheostomy. We also report the good long-term survival of this case after such a critical condition.
