Composite tumor of the larynx: A Case Report
Composite tumor of larynx, a recently included entity in the current WHO classification, is often a difficult pathological diagnosis, especially in small biopsies. We report a case of laryngeal composite tumor, initially misdiagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma, which later turned out to be composite in nature, with associated neuroendocrine (small cell carcinoma) component. This report emphasizes the need for obtaining deeper biopsies and their thorough pathological examination to improve the diagnostic accuracy.
