Abstract

Liposarcoma of the larynx is a rare entity, typically well differentiated with a good prognosis. We present a patient who presented to ENT clinic with a 3-month history of hoarseness. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the neck demonstrated a 2.5-cm mass of the true vocal cord, which biopsy demonstrated to be dedifferentiated liposarcoma of the larynx. The patient went on to total laryngectomy with planned adjuvant radiation therapy. The presentation and imaging findings of laryngeal liposarcoma are nonspecific, but this neoplasm should be considered in the differential of masses in the head and neck.
