Epidemiology

Laryngeal chondrosarcoma (LCS) is the most common non-epithelial malignancy of the larynx, and comprises 75% of laryngeal sarcomas {1489}. Cartilaginous neoplasms are estimated to represent 0.07-0.2% of all laryngeal tumours {255}. Approximately 300 cases of cartilaginous laryngeal tumours have been reported; the majority are represented by chondrosarcomas. They affect adults in the 6-9th decades, with a mean age at diagnosis of 60-65 years. The male to female ratio is approximately 3:1.
