NAPOLITANO V, Carla et al. Chondroid tumor of the thyroid cartilage: Case report and literature review. Rev. Otorrinolaringol. Cir. Cabeza Cuello [online]. 2017, vol.77, n.1, pp.51-56. ISSN 0718-4816.

Chondroid tumors of the larynx are uncommon, and usually located in the cricoid cartilage. Surgery is the treatment of choice, with good prognosis in general. We report the case of a 60-year-old man consulting for dysphonia. The nasopharyngolaryngoscopy showed a supraglottic laryngeal mass. The images were compatible with a thyroid cartilage lesion. The biopsy sample obtained by direct microlaryngoscopy was consistent with a condroma. A complete excision of the lesion was performed by external approach and the biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of a low grade chondroid tumor. We present a review of chondroid tumors of the larynx based on available literature.

Keywords : Chondroma; thyroid cartilage; laryngeal tumors; larynx.
