• Laryngeal rhabdomyosarcomas are very rare, extremely malignant tumors. Approximately half of the reported cases have occurred in children. Diagnosis may be difficult, and adequate biopsy material is crucial in the identification of these lesions. Until recently, rhabdomyosarcomas carried a dismal prognosis; however, combined treatment with surgery, irradiation, and triple chemotherapy appears to have improved the outlook. This should probably be the treatment for laryngeal rhabdomyosarcomas, and was successfully used in the case reported herein.
