Primary tumors of the cervical trachea are quite rare, with reports of fewer than 3 new cases per million per year.1,2 They represent a wide variety of histopathologic subtypes, among which adenoid cystic carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are the most common, representing approximately 76% of all tumors.
