Laryngeal hemangiomas in adults are uncommon. We report four such cases seen at our clinic during an 18-month period in 1996 and 1997. All masses were detected by endoscopy, and all were biopsied and ablated uneventfully with a CO2 laser. All four patients recovered without incident. We feel that laryngeal hemangiomas that affect only the glottic area can be treated endoscopically with a CO2 laser without consequences.
