Symptoms are mostly nonspecific or mild. A large pedunculated polyp may lead to an airway emergency if dislodged in the laryngeal inlet. An unusual presentation of pigmented pedunculated fibroepithelial polyp of palatine tonsil in a 14 yr old paediatric female patient is been discussed with the clinical and histopathological features of the lesion.
