Objectives: Discuss the antipathogenic, diagnostic and therapeutic aspect.

The cervical mass in both cases were expansive respectively to screaming and maneuvering Valsalva. Healing of the pathway associated with dyspnea was found in the first and dysphonia in the second. Nasofibroscopy revealed left ventricular tumefaction with both patients. Pharyngolaryngeal CT scan has confirmed laryngocele. The treatment was surgical with excision of the pocket in the second patient and in the first patient the surgical alternative could not be performed.
