Large airway reconstruction is difficult and requires a flap which will mirror the tissue variety. The main challenge is to keep the reconstruction stable and prevent collapse. In this report, the authors present a laryngotracheal reconstruction with a buccal mucosa-prefabricated medial femoral condyle free flap, after chondroma excision in a one-step procedure. Functional results are promising and were confirmed by endoscopy and CT examination 12 months postoperatively. This reconstruction-with-prefabrication technique, among others, may be used in the reconstruction of different regions like craniofacial bone defects, apart from larynx and trachea...

INTRODUCTION: Laryngeal cartilaginous framework tumors are very rare. Chondroma and chondrosarcoma are the most common types of these tumors. PATIENT PRESENTATION: A 27-year-old man with a history of intubation presented with exercise-induced dyspnea. A computed tomography scan of larynx showed a rounded and circumscribed mass without infiltration of the adjacent structures which obstructs 75% of airway. Histopathological investigation of the mass revealed the chondroma of the larynx...

Primary chondroid tumors of the larynx represent less than 1% of all laryngeal tumors. Most of them are chondromas and they often involve to the cricoid cartilage. They are characterized by a low tendency to metastatic diffusion (low grade). The treatment of choice is surgery, which may be endoscopic or "open partial surgery", if extension of the cancer is limited. Prognosis is generally good. In this report, two cases of low grade chondrosarcoma of the larynx are presented, one was treated surgically with cricoidectomy and partial laryngectomy, and another was treated surgically with hemicricoidectomy...

Cartilaginous tumors of the larynx and trachea are uncommon in the dog. The authors describe 10 cases diagnosed between 1995 and 2014 and review 16 cases in the literature. Seven of our cases were tracheal and 3 were laryngeal. Two of the laryngeal tumors were chondromas, which have not been previously reported in this site. The third laryngeal tumor was a myxochondroma. Of the 7 tracheal tumors, 6 arose from the ventral tracheal wall, including 2 that were extraluminal. Tracheal tumor types included chondrosarcoma (n = 3), chondroma (n = 2), and osteochondroma (n = 2)...

Endobronchial chondromas are rare benign tumors. They may be part of the Carney triad; however, isolated endobronchial chondromas can occur in the larynx, trachea, and bronchi. We report a case of an endobronchial chondroma in a 61-y-old man with an incidental 5-mm endobronchial polypoid lesion at the proximal left main bronchus that was later found to be an endobronchial chondroma. Flexible bronchoscopy demonstrated a pedunculated, vascularized, pink mass. An excisional biopsy revealed a well-circumscribed lesion with nodular areas of mature cartilage and myxoid tissue confirmatory of an endobronchial chondroma...

UNLABELLED: The larynx serves to protect the lower airways, facilitates respiration and plays a key role in phonation. Based on anatomic location, the larynx is divided into the supraglottic larynx, the glottis or glottic larynx, and the subglottic larynx. The tumours of larynx can be divided into benign or malignant. Laryngeal granulomas, Vocal cord nodules, Vocal cord polyps are tumour-like lesions of larynx. Benign laryngeal tumors include a large number of lesions like papillomas, hemangiomas, fibromas, chondromas, myxomas, and neurofibromas...

Chondrosarcoma represents approximately 11% of all primary malignant bone tumors. It is the second most common sarcoma arising in bone after osteosarcoma. Chondrosarcomas of the head and neck are rare and may involve the sinonasal tract, jaws, larynx or skull base. Depending on the anatomical location, the tumor can produce a variety of symptoms. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are the preferred imaging modalities. The histology of conventional chondrosarcoma is relatively straightforward; major challenges are the distinction between grade I chondrosarcomas and chondromas, and the differential diagnosis with chondroblastic osteosarcoma and chondroid chordoma...

OBJECTIVES: To describe an atypical case of laryngeal chondrosarcoma of arytenoid cartilage presenting as bilateral vocal fold immobility and to avoid potential missed diagnosis. METHODS: Our case study included a detail history, physical and radiological examination, laryngeal electromyography (LEMG), and surgical treatment and pathology analysis. We compared it with the previously discussed cases of chondrosarcoma of arytenoid cartilage in the literature. RESULTS: Chondrosarcomas of the arytenoid cartilage is rare, and to date only approximately 10 cases have been reported...

INTRODUCTION: Cartilaginous tumours of the larynx are rare. They usually involve cricoid cartilage, less frequently thyroid cartilage and other cartilages. The most significant clinical manifestations are hoarseness, dyspnea, dysphagia or a neck mass. On physical examination, tumour is found as a bulge with intact mucosa or a tumour situated in a part of the larynx also with fixation. CT scanning is the mainstay of radiographic imaging. The histopathologic diagnosis is made after the surgical excision...

Extraskeletal chondroma is a benign cartilaginous tumor that occurs predominantly in the soft tissues near small joints of the hands and feet. There are rare reports of the lesion in other sites, such as the head, neck, trunk, oral cavity, larynx, and pharynx. We present a case of an axillary mass in a 15-year-old girl who underwent MRI examination and resection, with the ultimate diagnosis of an extraskeletal chondroma, in order to expand the differential diagnosis of an axillary soft tissue mass in an adolescent...

Laryngeal tumours are not uncommon. Great majorities of cordal benign tumours are non-neoplastic. The important tumours are polyps and nodes, cysts, non-specific granulome of vocal process, papillary keratosis, laryngocoele and primary amyloiosis. These are mostly non-neoplostic tumours. Papiloma, Fibroma, Angioma, Chondroma, Adenoma, are the other varieties of laryngeal tumour which are neoplastie. Fibroma is mostly seen at the junction of middle and anterior thirds of the vocal lords. Fibromyxoma is a rare variety and can be confirmed by histopathology...

Primary chondroid tumors of the larynx represent less than 1% of all laryngeal tumors. Most of them are chondromas and they often involve to the cricoid cartilage. A 31-year-old male patient applied to the oto-laryngology service with a history of dysphonia and dyspnea. Microlaryngoscopy revealed 2 cm sized, ill-defined, covered with regular mucosa, porous, and hard mass on posterior surface of crycoid cartilage in subglottic area. Following the excision of the lesion, histopathologic examination revealed as chondroma...

Clear cell chondrosarcoma is a rare variant of chondrosarcoma that mostly involves the end of long bones. However, nine cases have been reported in the head and neck: four in larynx, two in nasal septum, two in maxilla and one in the skull. These cases form the basis of this review. Head and neck cases accounts for less than 5% of Clear cell chondrosarcomas in the whole body and the larynx is the most common place. The histological findings of head and neck cases are consistent with general features of this entity in the whole body and nearly all tumors in this case series had a component of conventional chondrosarcoma...

Chondrosarcoma is the most frequently encountered nonepithelial tumor of the larynx. Still, laryngeal chondrosarcoma is a rare disease, accounting for less than 1% of all laryngeal neoplasms; only about 600 cases have been reported in the world literature. The two most common sites of origin are the cricoid cartilage (69% of cases) and the thyroid cartilage (9%); arytenoid cartilage origin has been seen in less than 3% of cases. The diagnosis of laryngeal chondrosarcoma is easy to miss because of its infrequent occurrence, its indolent pattern of growth, and the difficulty in differentiating it histopathologically from chondroma...
