Abstract
Small cell carcinoma mainly occurs in the lung. Approximately 2.5-5% of small cell carcinomas are prima-ry extrapulmonary which are commonly found in the esophagus, GI tract, skin, uterus, and urinary tract.Small cell carcinoma of the head and neck is extremely rare and its prognosis is poor.We report a case of supraglottic small cell carcinoma with cervical lymph node and rib metastasis in a 75-year-old man. The patient was treat-ed with sequential combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, but the cancer has progressed.We conclud-ed that we have to find an effective therapy for laryngeal small cell carcinoma.
Key Words: Small cell carcinoma, Supraglottis
