Abstract

INTRODUCTIONCarcinoma of the subglottis is relatively rare compared with other laryngeal subsites. Recurrence in a case of carcinoma subglottis, which was previously treated by radiotherapy, is usually managed by total laryngectomy. The reasons for this are the difficulty to leave a functional larynx after oncological resection and difficult visualization for surgical access. A detailed literature review on the subject shows that conservative open surgical resection and/or reconstruction of recurrent carcinoma of the subglottis has not been explored much before.CASE REPORTWe present the case of a 49‐year‐old man who came to us with the complaint of hoarseness of his voice. He had a known case of carcinoma of the subglottis, for which post laser excision was done on August 14, 2013, followed by radiotherapy at a dose of 60 Gy/30 fractions, which was completed on October 25, 2013. There was no history of any addictions or systemic diseases. He was apparently normal for 1 year when he developed hoarseness of his voice, for which he underwent a CT scan at a local center, which showed a recurrent lesion in the glottic‐subglottic area. The presence of the lesion was confirmed by videolaryngoscopy, which showed a proliferative lesion involving the subglottis, mainly
