Abstract

Primary cartilaginous tumors of the laryngeal lesion are rare and it accounts for only 1% of laryngeal tumor pathology. They are most commonly located on the endolaryngeal surface of cricoid cartilage, and it is extremely rare to find them in vocal muscle lesion. In most cases, treatment of choice is based on surgical excision, and postoperative radiotherapy is typically recommended. We experienced a case of a 22-year-old young woman without underlying disease, presenting extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma of vocal cord, especially in the vocal muscle. The patient underwent mass excision through suspension laryngoscope and radiation therapy.
