Abstract

Laryngeal carcinoma in childhood is exceedingly rare, accounting for less than 0.1% of all head and neck malignancies seen in children. Due to its rarity and non specific nature of symptoms, this malignant condition can be easily missed and treated as other common benign conditions. Early diagnosis is important as it influence the choice of treatment modality. We report a rare case of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma in a 15-year-old boy.
