Abstract

Neuroendocrine tumors of the larynx comprise a rare group of tumors categorized as typical carcinoid, atypical carcinoid, small-cell neuroendocrine carcinomas, and paragangliomas. Atypical carcinoid type occasionally denotes carcinoid syndrome. Typical carcinoid is extremely rare. The primary diagnosis is based on light histochemical studies that should be confirmed by immunocytological and/or ultrastuctural investigation. The different biological behaviors of these tumors lead to a specific diagnosis of paramount importance
