Malignant laryngeal fibrous histiocytoma: a new concept of management
The Egyptian Journal of Otolaryngology volume 31, pages199–201(2015)
A 75-year-old male patient presented to the Speech and Language Disorder Outpatient Clinic of King Abdullah Medical City, Makkah, Saudi Arabia, on February, 2010, with a complaint of gradual onset and progressive course of dysphonia for 2 years. Nasofibrolaryngoscopic examination indicated a polipoidal mass of about 1.5 × 1 cm masking the entire glottic inlet. The mass was removed by direct laryngoscopy and diagnosed as a malignant fibrous histiocytoma. The patient developed recurrence of the tumor on the same site postoperatively and underwent the same procedure of excision, followed by a second recurrence. Direct laryngoscopic excision of the tumor was performed for a third time, but with a safety margin of 2 mm. Monthly follow-up examination indicated no postoperative recurrence till 10 months.
