CASE REPORT CONCLUSIONS: ITET is a rare cause of upper airway obstruction. CT scan of the neck without contrast should be performed to evaluate the location of obstruction. MRI scan should be used to assess the extent and vascular nature of the lesion. Endoscopic laser excision is an appropriate treatment option for benign and vascular ITET tissue.
