Abstract/OtherAbstract:
2 cases of laryngeal metastases from malignant melanoma of the skin have been observed at the ENT Department of Padua University during the last 17 years (from January 1966 through December 1982). A critical review of the pertinent literature is made and the metastatic spread to the larynx is also discussed. The importance of routine indirect laryngoscopy in neoplastic patients 'at risk' is underlined.
