Amyloidosis is a heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by accumulation of amyloid protein in different organs of the body. Localized affection of the larynx by amyloid deposits is a rare event. This is a case of localized laryngeal amyloidosis in a 24-year-old female patient presented with hoarseness of voice. The amyloid mass was occupying the anterior part of the subglottic region and reaching up between both the vocal folds. Complete excision was achieved by cold instruments. Localized laryngeal amyloidosis despite being rare should be kept in mind as one of the causes of mass lesions in the larynx.
