Adult laryngeal hemangiomas are rare and uncommon. Hemangioma isolated to the free-edge of vocal cord is very rare. We report five cases diagnosed at our voice clinic during 18 months-period from July 2016 to December 2017. All the five patients presented with hoarseness and the laryngoscopy examination detected a pink mass at the vocal edge with the histopathology indicating hemangioma. Direct laryngoscopy with laryngeal carbon dioxide (CO2) laser microscopic surgery was performed uneventfully and no recurrence was found. We suggest that Microscopic Laser Laryngoscopy (CO2) is the treatment option of vocal fold hemangioma with no intraoperative massive bleeding.
