Abstract

We report a case of primary melanoma of the larynx in a patient who died of disseminated disease 13 months later. It is a rare malignant tumor in the head and neck, accounting for 0.4-10% of all melanomas of this site. Histologically, the presence of in situ changes within the laryngeal mucosa strongly supports our diagnosis of primary melanoma of the larynx.
