Abstract

Tumours of smooth muscle origin are extremely rare in the upper aerodigestive tract. Immunohistochemical studies are helpful for accurate diagnosis of leiomyosarcoma. Here, we report a case of well-differentiated laryngeal leiomyosarcoma that showed rapid local growth but no metastasis. Diagnosis and treatment of leiomyosarcoma are discussed.
