Abstract:
Chondrosarcoma of the larynx: a report of two cases and a review of the literature. This paper describes two cases of low-grade laryngeal chondrosarcoma. In both cases, the tumours were located on the cricoid, and could be visu- alized with a CT scan and magnetic resonance imaging. The diagnosis was made by a deep wedge biopsy with a CO 2 laser, and after subtotal supracricoid laryngectomy. Most of the reported cases have been successfully managed by voice- sparing surgery, but the two cases reported here, needed more radical treatment.
