Leiomyosarcoma of the larynx

J Otolaryngol. 1991 Oct;20(5):345-8.


Leiomyosarcoma (LMS) is an uncommon tumor among the spectrum of soft tissue sarcomas. It is exceedingly rare in the head and neck regions. We report a case of laryngeal LMS that presented with obstructive symptoms, which was amenable to conservative surgery and postoperative irradiation. There is no evidence of recurrent disease at 18-month follow-up.
