    Angelica Lynch*, Chris Perry, Bernard Mark Smithers, Raefe Gundelach and Daniel Rowe

    Hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a rare form of malignancy and treatment approach is most commonly with chemo-radiotherapy or total pharyngolaryngoesophagectomy. We report a case of hypopharyngeal SCC managed with local resection and larynx preservation in a 77-year-old-woman. Total pharyngolaryngoesophagectomy renders patients with an alteration in both voice and ability to swallow hence carrying signifi cant post-operative morbidity. We review the literature for similar larynx-preserving operations and illustrate a novel approach to the management of this rare malignancy.
