Non-epithelial malignant neoplasms of the larynx.


From 1948 to 1992, 14 patients with non-epithelial malignant neoplasm of the larynx were seen in the ENT Department of the Gdańsk School of Medicine. During this period, 2,249 patients with malignant laryngeal neoplasms were treated. The choice of therapy (laryngectomy, total or partial, excision by thyrotomy, irradiation or chemotherapy) depended on the size and location of the tumor and its histopathological nature. Significant for these tumors were: unchanged mucosa covering the tumor, rare metastases to the cervical lymph nodes, difficulties in estimating a histopathological diagnosis and determination, in certain types their unifocal nature.
