Abstract

Clear cell carcinoma (CCC) of the larynx is extremely rare and to the best of our knowledge no such case has been reported in the paediatric age group.These tumours resemble the clear cell carcinoma of the major and minor salivary glands. We report such a lesion in a 15 years old boy presenting with hoarseness and an exophytic growth in the glottis. A frontolateral conservation laryngectomy with laryngoplasty was done and over 2 years follow-up has shown no evidence of loco-regional recurrence and he enjoys an acceptable voice.
