Laryngocele is an air-filled or fluid-filled abnormal dilatation of the laryngeal saccule. The paper presents a case of tracheotomy in acute respiratory disorder due to laryngopyocele in a 76-year old woman. The patient complained of swelling of the neck for 3 days before being admitted to the hospital. The tracheotomy was performed to quickly secure the Airways prior to progression of swelling. Computed tomography examination showed the presence of bilateral mixed-type laryngocele ‒ on the right air-filled and on the left fluid-filled. First, the acute infection was treated with antibiotics which were followed by surgical excision of laryngopyocele via an external approach. Tracheotomy removal was performed a few days after surgery. A review of the literature is also presented.
