Abstract

We present another case of squamous cell carcinoma of the trachea developed in a tracheotomy scar. In the literature 6 cases of cancer found in tracheotomy scars or tracheostomies are reported. The patients' ages ranged from 6 to 66 years. The interval between tracheotomy and the occurrence of cancer ranged from 3 to 41 years. Local extirpation and radiotherapy were tried. The use of stents is emphasized.
