Liposarcoma is a malignant mesenchymal tumor originating from adipose tissue. Soft tissue liposarcomas are quite common in the adult population, whereas a primary liposarcoma in the larynx is exceedingly rare. Liposarcomas of the larynx have a high risk of local recurrence but seldom metastasize. The prognosis of these tumors is better than that of non-laryngeal liposarcomas. We present a case of a sixty-year old male with laryngeal liposarcoma which was diagnosed as an epiglottic cyst clinically.
