A 59-year-old man presented with a 2-year history of intermittent hoarseness; he also had increasing shortness of breath for the past 2 months and an acute episode of dyspnea. On admission, indirect and flexible laryngoscopy showed an extensive submucosal lesion that was covered by an apparently intact mucosa; the lesion was invading the right hemilarynx and narrowing the homolateral pyriform sinus, causing unilateral vocal cord fixation. A hard, painless 1.0 × 1.5-cm mass originating from the laryngeal framework was palpable in the cervical area of the right side of the neck. Palpation revealed no enlarged cervical lymph nodes in the neck.
