Rhabdomyosarcoma is an uncommon type of soft tissue malignant neoplasm characterized by undifferentiated mesodermal tissue. Sarcomas account for approximately 1% of all laryngeal neoplasm and rhabdomyosarcomas are the rarest sarcoma found in the larynx. When the sarcoma involves the larynx, radical surgery such as laryngectomy has been considered. With recent advances of combined therapy, however, it can be treated by conservative surgeries followed by postoperative radiotherapy and/or pulse chemotherapy. With reviews of literature, we report a 47-year-old patient complaining of husky voice and throat discomfort who was finally diagnosed as rhabdomyosarcoma of the vocal fold and successfully treated by laser cordectomy followed by adjuvant chemoradiotherapy.
