Acromegalic patients can develop mild upper airway obstruction. However, the limitation of both vocal folds mobility developing dyspnea is rare. We report a case with bilateral vocal cord paralysis associated with acromegaly. The patient visited our clinic presenting dyspnea showing bilateral vocal cord hypomobility in laryngoscopy. The patient underwent a tracheostomy and a transsphenoidal resection of the pituitary adenoma. Thereafter, laser cordotomy with medial arytenoidectomy was done for the permanent treatment of glottal obstruction. The tracheotomy canula was successfully removed one month after the surgery.
