Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH), which particularly involves the trunk and the upper and lower limbs, originates from the mesenchymal tissue. The larynx is one of the very rare locations. The disease has a poor prognosis due to local recurrence and metastasis. The first-line treatment is wide excision of the tumor. Herein, we report a case of MFH of the vocal fold in a 68-year-old man presenting with recurrence.
