A 12‑year‑old female presented with a 2‑month history of dyspnea and a progressively worsening hoarseness lasting >10 years. The subsequently identified mass was completely resected from the patient's supraglottic area using a laser and suspension laryngoscope. The mass was diagnosed as a bronchogenic cyst using histopathology. While the prognosis for these cysts is good, long‑term follow‑up remains necessary for such patients because there are several reports in the literature indicating the potential for malignancy to develop. The patient in the present study experienced no complications or recurrence of the bronchogenic cyst 2 years following surgery. To the best of our knowledge, only 2 cases of bronchogenic cysts arising from the larynx have been reported in China, and the present study introduces the first case of a bronchogenic cyst of the larynx in a Chinese patient reported in English.
