Hyoid and laryngeal chondrosarcomas have different clinicopathologic features.Acta Otolaryngol. 2005 Jun; 125(6):683-6.AO
Hyoid chondrosarcomas (CSs) are uncommon cervical tumours with different features compared to laryngeal CSs. Herein we report a hyoid CS in a 36-year-old male and review the literature. Only eight cases of hyoid CS have been reported to date. We have found important differences between hyoid and laryngeal CSs in terms of the age at presentation, gender, clinical symptoms, time before diagnosis, histologic findings and tumour size.
