Contemporary management of laryngeal carcinoma often incorporates multiple modalities of therapy. We report a case of osteoradionecrosis of the hyoid bone in a patient treated with surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy for a supraglottic squamous cell carcinoma. A discussion regarding pathophysiology, radiation dosimetry and treatment options is also presented.
