Unusual distant metastasis of larynx carcinoma: a case report

Muharrem Dağlı1, Aydın Acar, Adil Eryılmaz, Celil Göçer

Although distant metastasis from larynx carcinoma is
more common in the late stages, it may sometimes
occur in the initial period of the disease. The tumor
spread may be by a lymphatic or nonlymphatic route. A
40-year-old male patient presented with complaints of
hoarseness and shortness of breath. Indirect laryngoscopic
examination showed a vegetable mass extending
from the left laryngeal side of the epiglottis to the left
vocal cord. Level 3 lymphadenopathies were noted in
the jugular region. Biopsy result revealed epidermoid
carcinoma. Magnetic resonance imaging performed
due to complaints of back pain and foot numbness
demonstrated aggressive spinal cord metastases. The
patient died on the tenth day of hospitalization.
