Heterotopic Salivary Gland Tissue (HSGT) of the larynx is an extremely rare pathology, with only 8 cases reported in English literature. We are reporting 2 cases of HSGT in the larynx which we encountered in our practice. The first one is a unique presentation of a 45 year old female with HSGT in bilateral false vocal cords. While the second case is 50-year-old male patient with HSGT in the left false vocal cord and subglottic region. With these 2 cases, we would be discussing about the clinical presentation of this rare anomaly and add to the literature.
