This case shows the small tumor of the middle part of the left vocal fold. In the stroboscopic examination, the mobility of the fold was preserved and the vibrations were slightly limited in the middle part. Cordectomy typ I partial typ II  was performed to excise the lesion. Cotton swab was used to secure the intubation tube. In the first stage, using a laser, we mark the resection margin, then we remove the epithelium but in some parts also subepithelial layer of the vocal fold, preserving the deeper layers, such as the vocal ligament or the vocal muscle. The specimen was sent for histopathological examination.
