Angiosarcomas are extremely rare malignant tumours of the larynx. We present a case of laryngeal angiosarcoma in a 58-year-old man who presented with hoarseness of voice, dysphagia and neck swelling. The patient underwent a total laryngectomy with a pre-operative and frozen section diagnosis of a poorly differentiated carcinoma of the larynx. Histopathological and immunohistochemical evaluation revealed features of a laryngeal angiosarcoma. The case is presented for its rarity and diagnostic difficulty.
