Abstract

Objective: Recurrence of a typical laryngeal carcinoid is extremely rare after surgery with tumor-free margins on histopathology. We present a rare case of typical laryngeal carcinoid that recurred after eight years and was managed by conservative surgery.

Methods:

Design: Case report 

Setting: Tertiary Government Hospital

Patient: One

Results: A known case of typical laryngeal carcinoid treated eight years back reported again with the same symptoms he previously had. On evaluation local tumor recurrence was identified with a negative metastatic workup. The patient was subjected to microlaryngeal excision which was adequate histopathologically. He has had no evidence of disease on follow up of two years.

Conclusion: A typical laryngeal carcinoid tumor may present differently and recur locally but conservative surgery is still an option if local nodal and distant metastatic spread is ruled out.

 Key words: neuroendocrine tumor,typical laryngeal carcinoid, microlaryngeal excision. hemoptysis
