PATHOLOGIC QUIZ CASE 1
John R. McFarlane, MD, Houston
A 68-year-old man had a five-year history of hoarseness. Suspension laryngoscopy and a biopsy specimen taken in 1971 revealed a T1 squamous cell carcinoma of the left true vocal cord. He was treated with 6,000 rads, during a six-week period, through parallel opposed fields. He did well until his hoarseness recurred in April 1974. During the next eight months, he underwent laryngoscopy and biopsy of the left vocal cord on four separate occasions.
