Liposarcoma of the larynx is an uncommon tumor. Only 27 cases have been described in literature. We report a new case occurring in a 50-year-old patient. The treatment consisted of a total laryngectomy with lymph node dissection followed by adjuvant irradiation. Prognosis for laryngeal liposarcoma is better than that of non laryngeal liposarcoma. This tumor is at high risk of local recurrence and seldom has metastatic potential.
