Bottom Line: Tracheal chondrosarcoma is a rare malignant mesenchymal tumor and there are less than 15 reports in the literature.We report a rare case of laryngotracheal chondrosarcoma in a 74-year-old man.He gave a history of radioiodine therapy for thyroid papillary carcinoma about 24 years ago.

ABSTRACT
Tracheal chondrosarcoma is a rare malignant mesenchymal tumor and there are less than 15 reports in the literature. We report a rare case of laryngotracheal chondrosarcoma in a 74-year-old man. He gave a history of radioiodine therapy for thyroid papillary carcinoma about 24 years ago. Diagnostic steps, histological presentation, and therapy are described in detail.

Figure 1: Coronal computed tomography scan of the neck showing a large endotracheal soft tissue mass with coarse calcification foci on the left side of the subglotic area, causing severe narrowing of the tracheal lumen

Mentions: A 74-year-old male patient suffered from progressive dyspnea, hoarseness, and stridor over a period of a few months prior to preoperative assessment. He had a total thyroidectomy and was treated with 3,700 MBq (100 mCi) of radioactive iodine following thyroidectomy due to thyroid papillary carcinoma. Computed tomography (CT) scan and fiberoptic bronchoscopy were performed with suspicion of recurrent papillary carcinoma in cricoid cartilage and trachea. There was a mass in the left side of the subglotic area with intact mucosa [Figure 1]. After exploration of the neck via a collar incision, a mass on the left side proximal to the trachea and cricoid cartilage with involvement of left recurrent nerve was discovered. Proximal trachea, in addition to the left half of cricoid cartilage, was resected.
