• We reviewed three cases of neuroendocrine carcinoid tumors of the larynx, located on the arytenoid cartilage, treated between 1962 and 1985 at the Laennec Hospital, University of Paris (France) V. Staging was performed according to the 1979 American Joint Committee for Cancer Staging Classification. None of the lesions were associated with symptoms of the carcinoid syndrome. Local and nodal recurrences, distant metastasis, and survival were analyzed. Among the 112 reported carcinoid (neuroendocrine) tumors of the larynx, arytenoid location represented 28.6% (32/112) of the cases. A review of these 32 patients was performed to analyze the problems associated with that location.
