Upper airway pathologies have been reported to cause obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
We present two rare cases of OSA, one with laryngocele secondary to partial laryngectomy and the other with epiglottic cyst.
In the management of cases with OSA symptoms, a detailed evaluation of upper airways, including endoscopic and radiological examinations as well as polysomnography, should be done.
