Abstract

Abstract: The larynx is known to be a very rare site for metastases of tumours of various regions due to its terminal position in the lymphatic circulation system. The last case of a massive transglottic deposit of the larynx with associated classical symptoms was described in 1997. Our case describes a unique clinical history of a laryngeal metastasis of colon adenocarcinoma without typical physical presentation but mimicking Paget’s disease. Due to its scarce appearance in clinical practice and medical literature, laryngeal metastasis of cancer can be an immense diagnostic challenge. The aforementioned case is a great contribution to the understanding and management of such patients.
