Successful surgery with preservation of laryngeal function in a patient with collision primary squamous cell carcinoma and adenoid cystic carcinoma in the hypopharynx and synchronous esophageal carcinoma: A case report.

Head & Neck 2023 November
BACKGROUND: The definition of "collision tumor" is the coexistence of two histologically and morphologically distinct tumors within the same anatomical area without histological admixture. Collision tumors featuring primary squamous cell and adenoid cystic carcinomas of the hypopharynx, combined with synchronous esophageal carcinoma, are very rare.

METHODS: We describe a patient with a collision tumor of the hypopharynx and synchronous esophageal carcinoma who underwent partial laryngectomy, with preservation of laryngeal function, and radical esophageal resection featuring esophageal reconstruction using a gastric tube. Surgery was successful.

RESULTS: Postoperative radiotherapy was recommended after surgery; the patient exhibited no recurrence or distant metastasis to the 17-month follow-up.

CONCLUSION: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of collision of primary squamous cell carcinoma and adenoid cystic carcinoma in the hypopharynx and synchronous esophageal carcinoma. We performed appropriate surgery and prescribed postoperative radiotherapy. This preserved laryngeal function.
