CARCINOMA OF VOCAL CORD

CARCINOMA OF VOCAL CORD This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract The following case is recorded because of the occurrence of carcinoma of the left vocal cord nine years after the removal of the right vocal cord for a histologically benign papilloma. The clinical course indicates clearly that the tumor in the left cord was not a metastasis from that of the right cord. Involvement by direct extension or implantation also seems unlikely. That the carcinoma of the left cord may have resulted from the malignant degeneration of a benign papilloma or from a precancerous lesion in the left vocal cord cannot be excluded. REPORT OF A CASE History.—B. S., a tailor, aged 54, first consulted me on June 18, 1920, because of progressive loss of voice of five months' duration. The family history was unimportant. The patient's personal history revealed that he was in the habit of smoking three packages of cigarets daily, and that he took alcohol http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Otolaryngology American Medical Association
