Although discovered since nearly 2 centuries, the cystic tumours of the laryngeal ventricle remain very badly known by otorhinolaryngologists. Air-containing or cystic, these lesions can be congenital or acquired. We present an original case of laryngomucocele, acquired after a partial laryngectomy of Tucker type for a laryngeal neoplasy. Through a review of the literature, we expose in the second time, the etiopathogenic mechanisms of these lesions. If this pathology contributes to mislay the diagnosis during the post-operative survey, small surgical details at the time of the initial intervention, can prevent the appearance of this lesion. The treatment is a surgical procedure, with an endoscopic way or a cervicotomy.
