Laryngeal cancer in children and adolescents.

McGuirt WF Jr., Little JP


Laryngeal cancer is rare in children and adolescents, and delays in diagnosis are common because the presenting symptoms are often mistaken for inflammatory or benign laryngeal disease. Therefore, a high index of suspicion is necessary to make the diagnosis; however, data on treatment options and rehabilitation are limited. This article reviews the reported literature with recommendations for treatment and rehabilitation based on tumor histology.
