A report of laryngeal
adenocystic carcinoma metastatic to the spleen and the role of splenectomy in
the management of metastatic disease: a case report
Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) of
the larynx is a rare malignancy characterized by an indolent course and late
pulmonary metastases. Metastases from the larynx to the spleen are an unusual
event. In the present report, we discuss a patient with adenoid cystic

We present a case of laryngeal
adenoid cystic carcinoma in a 26-year-old Caucasian man treated with total
laryngectomy and ionizing radiation. He initially developed asynchronous
pulmonary metastases, which were resected. Our patient subsequently presented
with a symptomatic splenic lesion consistent with metastatic disease, for which
he underwent laparoscopic splenectomy.
Splenectomy might be indicated for
isolated metastases. A splenectomy effectively addresses symptoms and serves as
a cytoreduction modality.
