A 4-year-old spayed female Golden Retriever was presented for investigation of progressive loss of bark, continuous panting and increased upper respiratory noise. Examination of the larynx and pharynx under general anaesthesia identified a spherical 5 x 3 cm mass involving the right arytenoid cartilage. Cytological examination of fine needle aspirates from the mass suggested the tumour was a carcinoma, however histological examination in association with immunoperoxidase and histochemical staining identified the mass as a laryngeal rhabdomyoma.
