    Laryngeal hemangiomas are relatively rare. Laryngeal hemangiomas occur in two main forms--infantile and adult laryngeal hemangiomas. While infantile hemangiomas are usually found to occur in the subglottis, adult hemangiomas occur commonly in the supraglottic regions of the larynx. Laryngeal hemangioma with cavernous features isolated to the free edge of the vocal fold is a very rare clinical finding. We present a case of hemangioma of the right vocal cord in an adult, which was managed successfully in our center.

    Malignant transformation of recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) is a rare entity occurring in only less than 5% of patients with RRP. The risk of transformation can arise even in the absence of risk factors such as smoking and radiation. We describe a patient with juvenile RRP diagnosed since childhood, who suffered malignant transformation into a squamous cell carcinoma after 29 years. Keywords: Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis; laryngeal neoplasms; squamous cell carcinoma; human papilloma-virus.

    A retrospective study of cases with carcinoma of the larynx seen in the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and General Hospital Kuala Lumpur (GHKL) between 1981 to 1988 was performed. The aim was to document the distribution and the pattern of behaviour of this tumour amongst our patients. There were 137 cases, the majority of whom were Chinese (54%). The peak incidence was in the seventh decade and the male to female ratio was 7.6:1. The most common symptom at presentation was hoarseness (90%). The most common histological type was squamous cell carcinoma (87%) whilst by site, transglottic involvement was commonest (55%). The overall 3 year survival rate was 68%. Supraglottic carcinoma behaved differently in that a significantly large number presented with dysphagia (33.3%) and neck nodes (42%). Compared to tumours of other sites of the larynx, they had the poorest 3 year survival rate of 50%. Amongst the T2 and T3 tumours, the results of surgery appeared better than primary radiotherapy. Considering that 26% of patients presented with stridor, 20% with neck nodes and 55% with multiple site involvement, it can be concluded that our patients present themselves late.

    Laryngeal cancer is the most common head and neck cancer in the world and its incidence is on the rise. However, the
    molecular mechanism underlying laryngeal cancer pathogenesis is poorly understood. The goal of this study was to
    develop a protein-protein interaction (PPI) network for laryngeal cancer to predict the biological pathways that underlie
    the molecular complexes in the network. Genes involved in laryngeal cancer were extracted from the OMIM database
    and their interaction partners were identified via text and data mining using Agilent Literature Search, STRING and
    GeneMANIA. PPI network was then integrated and visualised using Cytoscape ver3.6.0. Molecular complexes in the
    network were predicted by MCODE plugin and functional enrichment analyses of the molecular complexes were performed
    using BiNGO. 28 laryngeal cancer-related genes were present in the OMIM database. The PPI network associated with
    laryngeal cancer contained 161 nodes, 661 edges and five molecular complexes. Some of the complexes were related to
    the biological behaviour of cancer, providing the foundation for further understanding of the mechanism of laryngeal
    cancer development and progression.

    Lymphoma is generally a nodal disease and arises from lymphoid tissues or organs. Extranodal lymphoma accounts for almost a third of malignant lymphomas. Squamous cell carcinoma accounts for 90 % of laryngeal carcinoma, while extranodal Non Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) attributes only less than 1% of laryngeal neoplasms. Less than 100 of such cases been reported in literature since 1952. As to our best knowledge, no such case was ever reported in our country. We report a case of a 58-year-old gentleman who presented the typical history of laryngeal malignancy however the pathology turned out to be as NHLof Diffuse Large B-cell subtype.

    The presence of cutaneous metastases in squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck (SCCHN) is rare and associated with a dismal prognosis. It is vital to distinguish these lesions from direct invasion of the skin by SCCHN or primary cutaneous malignancies as the prognosis is vastly different and so is the management. In this case report, we present four cases of cutaneous metastases and also briefly review the literature pertaining to this phenomenon.

    The onset of carcinoma of the larynx, especially of the glottis, is heralded mainly by a change of voice. It has a male preponderance and is almost exclusively common to smokers and patients with heavy alcohol consumption. We report a case of glottic carcinoma in a non-smoker female patient. The only possible risk factor for her is a history of laryngopharyngeal reflux.

    Radiotherapy is the accepted treatment for early laryngeal carcinomas with the advantage of voice preservation. It is however, not without complications. We report a case of bilateral vocal cord immobility 15 years after radiotherapy. This appears to be due to ankylosis of cricoarytenoid joint and fibrosis of the larynx.

    Patients with multiple malignant primary tumours are often described, based on their chronology of presentation, as simultaneous, synchronous or metachronous tumours. Lung malignancies presenting in association with head and neck tumours are well documented while there have been small series of thyroid synchronous cancers presenting with laryngeal lesions in literature. No cases, to our knowledge, have been reported in literature of a single patient with all three laryngeal, lung and thyroid malignancies. We report one such case of a 71-year-old Chinese man who had undergone a total laryngectomy for a recurrent cancer of the larynx only to be found to have tumours of the lung and thyroid in the post-operative period and he eventually died of post-operative complications. We also discuss screening for lung and thyroid malignancies in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).

    INTRODUCTION: The concept of neck dissection (ND) in the management armamentarium of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma has evolved throughout the years. Nowadays, ND becomes more functional.

    METHODOLOGY: A retrospective study of 865 patients was performed at Netherlands Cancer Institute-Antoni Van Leeuwenhoek Hospital to investigate the feasibility of selective ND (SND). All patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the pharynx and larynx who received primary radiation and underwent salvage ND were included in the study.

    RESULT: A total of 29 NDs were analyzed. In 17 neck sides, viable metastases were found (58%), whereas in the other 12 specimens there were no viable metastases. In 16 of the 17 necks (94%), the metastases were located either in level II, III, or IV or in a combination of these 3 levels. Level V was involved in only 1 case (6%).

    CONCLUSION: It is well justified to perform a salvage SND (levels II, III, and IV) for pharyngeal and laryngeal carcinoma after primary radiation. In carefully selected cases of supraglottic and oropharyngeal carcinoma, a superselective ND also appears as an efficient option.

    Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and other head and neck cancer (HNCA) types show a great epidemiological variation in different regions of the world. NPC has multifactorial etiology and many interacting risk factors are involved in NPC development mainly Epstein Barr virus (EBV). There is a need to scrutinize the complicated network of risk factors affecting NPC and how far they are different from that of other HNCA types.

    Lipomas of the larynx, oropharynx and hypopharynx are rare, accounting for approximately 1% of benign laryngeal neoplasms. We present a rare case of a simple lipoma arising from the right vallecula. A 55-year-old male presented with worsening dysphagia for 1 week. CT scan revealed a lesion of fat attenuation in the right vallecula. The patient underwent surgical excision and recovered uneventfully. To our knowledge, there are only two cases of vallecular lipoma that have been reported and they are both of spindle cell subtype and located on the left side. This is the first reported case of a simple lipoma arising from the right vallecula and causing obstructive symptoms. CT scan or MRI is essential in confirming the diagnosis and assessing the extent, thus allowing prompt excision, especially when the patient is symptomatic.

    PURPOSE: This study was designed to find a reliable Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) immunoglobulin (Ig) G-based diagnostic/screening test for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) able to demarcate between the NPC-related seropositivity of EBV IgG antibodies and that of other head and neck cancer (HNCA) and control groups. The NPC-associated immunosuppression affects EBV IgA much more than IgG, leading to inconsistent detection of NPC using EBV IgA antibodies.
    MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred twenty-two HNCA patients, 42 NPC, 66 laryngeal carcinoma, and 14 hypopharyngeal carcinoma and 3 groups of 100 control subjects were enrolled in this study. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to find a specific cutoff value for the NPC-related seropositivity of EBV IgG antibodies.
    RESULTS: NPC group showed higher serum level of EBV IgG antibodies than control and other HNCA groups (P < .05). However, the traditional cutoff value, mean + 2 SDs of control subjects, failed to demarcate the seropositives of NPC patients from those of healthy population (P > .05). The new cutoff value, mean + 2 SDs of the seropositives group of control subjects who had already been grouped by the traditional cutoff value, proved successful. It succeeded to demarcate between the NPC-related EBV IgG seropositivity and that issued from the persistent, latent, or reactivated EBV infection in the population (P < .05). The sensitivity/specificity of NPC detection by the new cutoff-based ELISA kit, 76.19% and 86%, was close or higher than that of EBV IgA antibodies.
    CONCLUSION: EBV IgG-based ELISA could be used for the diagnosis of NPC using a new cutoff threshold that excludes the population baseline of EBV IgG seropositivity.
