A 55-year-old patient underwent a supracricoid laryngectomy (SCL) with cricohyodoepiglottopexy for a right vocal cord carcinoma involving the anterior commissure and the anterior third of the left vocal cord (T1bN0M0) in December 2006. At the time, the preoperative computed tomographic scan of the neck did not demonstrate pathologic findings other than the glottic tumor. Six months after surgery, the patient complained of a painless swelling in the right side of the neck; there was no response to a Valsalva manuever.
