Laryngeal chondrosarcoma is a rare tumor requiring clinical, histologic, and radiographic correlation for definitive diagnosis. Although it typically presents with low-grade histology, even high-grade histology has a fairly indolent progression in this location, with a relatively low-likelihood for metastatic potential or recurrence. Because of this, conservative surgical excision with negative margins is recommended. We present a case of a laryngeal chondrosarcoma arising from the cricoid cartilage in a patient who presented with hoarseness, dysphagia, and odynophagia with subsequent head and neck computed tomography scan suggestive of the diagnosis. The patient was treated with hemicricoidectomy.
