TAGLIARINI, José V.; BACCHI, Carlos E.; YAMASHITA, Seizo  and  CANCADO, Cristiane G.. Epiglottis chondrosarcoma: review of the literature and report of one case. Rev. Bras. Otorrinolaringol. [online]. 2001, vol.67, n.5, pp.722-725. ISSN 0034-7299.

Chondrosarcoma is the most frequent sarcoma of the larynx. It is more prevalent in the cricoid and less prevalent in the other laryngeal cartilages. Chondrosarcoma is rarely located in the epiglottis. We reported a case of epiglottis chondrosarcoma that was treated with a supracricoid laryngectomy with cricohyoidopexy.

Keywords : chondrosarcoma; larynx; supracriccoid laryngectomy.
