Only 0.3–1% of laryngeal cancer are non-squamous cell neoplasms. Of these, a rare entity is inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour (IMT), in which anaplastic lymphoma kinase-1 (ALK-1) is frequently expressed. Just 50 cases of IMT have been reported. Therefore, many otolaryngologists may be unfamiliar with this type of tumour and be prone to its over- or undertreatment. We report a case of ALK-1–negative IMT treated with transoral endoscopic excision and disease-free 6 months after surgery.

Abstract

Only 0.3–1% of laryngeal cancer are non-squamous cell neoplasms. Of these, a rare entity is inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour (IMT), in which anaplastic lymphoma kinase-1 (ALK-1) is frequently expressed. Just 50 cases of IMT have been reported. Therefore, many otolaryngologists may be unfamiliar with this type of tumour and be prone to its over- or undertreatment. We report a case of ALK-1–negative IMT treated with transoral endoscopic excision and disease-free 6 months after surgery.
