HERNANDEZ PENA, Odalys  and  CRESPO VIDAL, Ramón Enrique. Fusocellular sarcoma of the larynx. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2017, vol.46, n.1, pp.90-93. ISSN 0138-6557.

Cancer represents a global health problem within non-communicable chronic diseases and is one of the leading causes of death in today's society. Laryngeal cancer forms part of malignant tumors of the head and neck, the most common histological type being epidermoid carcinoma, which is more frequently located in the glottis and rarely appears under 40 years. On the other hand sarcomas originating in the head and neck are very rare malignancies, corresponding to 1% of the malignancies of this region and at least 10% of all the sarcomas of the organism. The presentation of a case of a 21-year-old patient with the histological diagnosis of subglottic fusocellular sarcoma is presented, which is interesting considering that the patient's age, as well as the histological type and the location of the tumor, are not a case frequent in our consultations.

Keywords : Larynx; epidermoid carcinoma; fusocellular sarcoma.
