• Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the larynx is an uncommon tumor that occurs almost exclusively in men. Primary vocal cord involvement is rare. We report a case of mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the vocal cord in a woman. Special histologic studies may be necessary to arrive at an accurate diagnosis of this neoplasm. Appropriate surgical intervention and close follow-up offer the patient the best chance for cure.
