Abstract

Liposarcomas of the larynx are very rare. A review of the English literature revealed only 28 published reports of tumours in this anatomical location. Diagnosis requires a high index of suspicion and careful histologic analysis. We present a case of a well-differentiated liposarcoma of the epiglottis, the tenth reported case at this laryngeal subsite. Initial biopsy specimens showed histological characteristics of a liposarcoma, which facilitated provision of optimal surgical treatment after careful analysis of published literature.
