Abstract

A 71-year-old male presented with a tumor of the larynx originated from the subglottic space adjacent to the anterior commisure. Movement of the vocal cords was well maintained and no huskiness of the voice was noted. Biopsy revealed adenoid cystic carcinoma. A partial resection of the larynx was performed with subsequent radiation therapy of 50 Gy. After one year follow up, no recurrence has been noted.<br>Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the larynx is rare. Surgical resection is the first choice of therapy because the effectiveness of radiation therapy and chemotherapy are limited. Long-term follow-up is necessary since this tumor may develop slowly, and recurrence or distant metastasis is common.
