Fibroepithelial polyps are benign polypoid lesions arising from the mesodermal tissue and composed of varying amounts of stroma covered by squamous epithelium. We report the unusual case of a 57 years old man who visited our Hospital with complains of airway obstruction and uneasy feeling like a foreign body deep in his throat. After medical examination we find a large mass on the right side of his hypopharinx and we resected tumour as an emergency procedure. Postoperative recovery was good. After two years patient came again in our Hospital with the same feeling and we found another lesion on the left side of his hypopharynx. We repeated the same surgical procedure like the first time. In medical review that is a rare lesion with small number of references. In this case, fibroepithelial polyps arose from the hypopharynx and these potentially fatal lesions may have resulted in complete airway obstruction.
