• The diagnoses of three cases of laryngeal oat-cell carcinoma were confirmed by electron microscopy. As in pulmonary oat-cell carcinoma, the prognosis in these cases is poor; of our three cases and the previously reported cases of this tumor type in the larynx, all but one of the patients, for whom there is adequate follow-up information, have died of widespread metastases. Aggressive radiation therapy and systemic chemotherapy appear indicated if improved survival is to be achieved.
