Chondrosarcoma of the larynx is a rare disease. The condition usually presents as a space-occupying lesion in the larynx. It is usually internal, but an external mass may be noted. Diagnosis demands a deep biopsy as the tumour is submucosal. Treatment is surgical, but the extent of this surgery is dependent upon the stage of the disease. The prognosis, in most cases, is usually very good. The literature relating to chondrosarcoma of the larynx is reviewed and salient features are presented. Added interest in this case is due to the long precedent history and the difficulty in obtaining a diagnosis.
