Abstract: Haemoptysis in an adult is frightening for both patient and clinician and warrants prompt evaluation and diagnosis. We report a case of a vallecular cyst (VC) in a thirty years old male presenting with haemoptysis, the second case in literature with such presentation. CO2 laser dissection of the VC after needle decompression was done with no complications or recurrence in a 2 months follow-up. VC have conflicting opinions in Classification, evaluation, and management. In this report, these opinions are reviewed and discussed.
