Abstract

This case report describes the novel use of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) with delayed transoral laser microsurgery (TLM) for residual disease in the resection of a pediatric neurofibroma with supraglottic and parapharyngeal space extension. Postoperatively, the patient had excellent functional outcomes. This case demonstrates that pediatric TORS is feasible, safe, and complementary to TLM. Neurofibroma is just one of the diverse pathologic processes of the pediatric airway that can be managed via transoral surgery, and applications of TORS with TLM will continue to broaden as our experience develops.
