Abstract:
Chondrosarcoma of the larynx: a case presentation. The chondrosarcoma of the larynx is an exceptionally rare tumour. It appears mainly in white men in their 7 decade. The most significant clinical manifestation is hoarseness accompanied at times by stridor. It involves mainly the cricoid cartilage and the treatment of choice is surgical excision. A case of a large tumour of the cricoid cartilage is described. The diagnostic work-up consisted of two minor operations for biopsies and an MRI scan prior to the patient being treated with total laryngectomy.
