Abstract


Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) of larynx is a rare malignant tumour with unknown aetiology. It accounts for less than 1% of all laryngeal malignancies worldwide. ACC of larynx is slowly progressive and arises from accessory salivary glands. It is known for mul-tiple recurrences and distant metastasis, which may occur even 5 years after treatment. In this article we report a case of 57 year old women with laryngeal adenoid cystic carcinoma who presented with a 5-month history of hoarseness of voice and noisy breathing. The patient underwent elective tracheostomy and biopsy followed by total laryngectomy with bilateral neck dissection. As laryngeal adenoid cystic carcinomas are well known for relapses and metastasis, regular follow up is necessary for early detection
