Abstract

Sarcomas are a rare occurrence accounting for roughly 1% of all cancer cases reported. Of these, 9-18% will be identified as liposarcoma. Overall, only 4-9% of all liposarcomas occur in the head and neck region. As such, it is a rare event to see a primary liposarcoma of the aerodigestive tract. These tumors are typically misdiagnosed secondary to their indolent, asymptomatic course and similarities in appearance to other benign lesions. An understanding of these lesions will help clinicians appropriately manage their patients. We present a case of a 60-year male with a primary supraglottic myxoid liposarcoma, and provide relevant information about liposarcomas.
