LARYNX - Carcinoma

The larynx has been opened from behind to show a fungating tumour on the mucosal surface of the epiglottis extending from the level of the left vocal chord to within 1 cm of the tip of the epiglottis. Viewed from the left side, tumour can be seen extending into the adjacent tissues. The histology of the lesion is that of a moderately well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma and involved lymph nodes were found in the bilateral block dissection of the neck carried out.
