Abstract

Distant metastases to the larynx are rare. We describe the case of a 46-year-old man who was referred to our head and neck surgery clinic with a 6-week history of sore throat and otalgia. He was found to have a laryngeal lesion that was consistent with a primary myxoid liposarcoma that had been extirpated from a lower extremity earlier. To the best of our knowledge, no case of myxoid liposarcoma metastatic to the larynx has been previously reported in the English-language literature.
