Laryngeal lymphoepithelial carcinoma (LEC) is a rare tumor with only 34 cases in the published literature. Epidemiologically, laryngeal LEC is extremely rare in Asian. Originally, LEC is a common type of carcinoma in nasopharynx. Laryngeal LEC resembles nasopharyngeal LEC, except that most cases of laryngeal LEC are not associated with Epstein-Barr virus. We present a case of laryngeal LEC which developed at the left false cord extending to true vocal cord, para-glottic space and pre-epiglottic space. Total laryngectomy with bilateral neck dissection was performed. LEC was reported as biopsy confirmation result. The patient underwent postoperative radiotherapy and showed no evidence of recurrence during follow-up period of 42 months. In consideration that LEC in larynx have not been reported in South Korea yet, we introduce the clinical features and treatment outcomes of laryngeal LEC with literature review.
