Air cyst of the larynx (laryngocele) is relatively rare lesion. Publications about the diseases are based on description of clinical cases and there is no universal classification. Treatment of the disease is usually surgical, but the methods of surgery are varied and mainly based on the choice of approach to the tumor. The authors observed and treated 16 patients with laryngocele. Internal laryngeal air cysts were removed by endolaryngeal approach under intravenous anesthesia with mechanical ventilation of lungs and plastics of postoperative wound. External and combined cysts were removed according to the authors’ method without opening the lumen of the hypopharynx and larynx. This method was developed by the authors of the work.
