Chondrosarcoma of the larynx is a rare malignant tumor sometimes encountered by otolaryngologists. Since they are usually of low grade malignancy, total laryngectomy is indicated only in cases of high grade malignancy or where total excision by conservative (partial) laryngectomy is not feasible. This paper reviews chondrosarcoma of the larynx, discusses a patient who developed this tumor, and describes a method of conservative surgical excision and laryngotracheal reconstruction when the tumor involves the cricoid, the most common site of occurrence in the larynx.
