Abstract IN JANUARY 1964 Pantazopoulos11 reported a case of primary malignant melanoma of the right false cord treated by removal through thyrotomy in November 1961. The patient was well 17 months later. The author reviewed the literature1-3,5-10,12,13 through 1961 and was able to find only ten cases of malignant melanoma of the larynx, seven of which were primary and three metastatic. Apparently, he did not include the metastatic case of Faaborg-Anderson4 reported in 1953. A case of malignant melanoma metastatic to the larynx is reported here. Report of a Case A 55-year-old white, retired, coal-mining foreman, was referred to me by Dr. S. S. Marchbanks in January 1960 complaining of hoarseness of several months' duration. He was first seen by him in February 1946 complaining of a skin lesion of the chest at the site of the removal of a brown to black mole with a hot cautery References 1.
