Hemangiopericytomas are rare vascular neoplasms of the head and neck. Laryngeal involvement is even rarer. Hemangiopericytomas arise from the pericytes lining the walls of vessels. The majority is benign and arises in the supraglottis. They are most often encountered in elderly patients and may bleed easily when manipulated. We present a rare case of huge hemangiopericytoma of right aryepiglottic fold obstructing the inlet of larynx which was completely resected with harmonic scalpel. The patient was regularly followed up for 1 year with no evidence of recurrence.
