A laryngocele grows pos-terosuperiorly on the medial side and pushes the band ventricles and the aryepiglottic folds. A laryngocele can pass through the thyrohyoid membrane and enter the soft tissues of the neck.

The otolaryngologist service performed a laryngoscopic examination, which revealed left side erythema and an edematous epiglottis and aryepiglottic folds consistent with acute epiglottitis (Figure 1).
Flexible fiberoptic laryngoscopy demonstrates the desquamating lesions of the subglottic region (arrow) (A) and the posterior cricoid, aryepiglottic folds, and piriform sinuses (arrows) (B).
[2] The common sites of occurrence of the benign lesions of larynx are vocal cords, anterior commissure, false cords, epiglottis, aryepiglottic folds and ventricle in chronological order.
(2,3) It affects larynx in descending order as arytenoids, aryepiglottic folds, rarely subglottic area.
Diffuse laryngeal edema involving the aryepiglottic folds, vocal fold paralysis, and upper airway obstruction are all potential clinical findings in patients with laryngeal manifestations of SLE.
There are many receptors in the mucosa of supraglottis which are highly sensitive to a vibration of laryngeal mucosa; whereas, tactile receptors are found in the epiglottis, aryepiglottic folds and vocal processes [6].
Fibreoptic nasoendoscopy revealed large bilateral supraglottic masses centered on the aryepiglottic folds. The right tumour was significantly larger than the left and encroached on the laryngeal inlet.
The aryepiglottic folds are thin walls of tissue that extend from the posterior upper larynx to the epiglottis, and these form the medial borders of the pyriform sinuses, which may be elucidated on a swallow study (not shown here).
In the pharyngeal phase, the larynx prevents material from entering the trachea by closing the true vocal cords, false vocal folds and aryepiglottic folds respectively.
(2) Lesions are found in the interarytenoid areas and on the aryepiglottic folds. Later, the true and false cords may be involved and airway compromise may develop.
