(10) In 2001, 2 reports of mesenchymal tumors treated with conservative surgery were published; Ianniello et al (6) reported using vertical hemilaryngectomy, and Veivers et al (10) used supracricoid partial laryngectomy with cricohyoidoepiglottopexy. The case reported by Ianniello et al (6) was diagnosed as a carcinosarcoma, and the case from Veivers et al (10) was diagnosed as a leiomyosarcoma; in retrospect, however, the latter might also have been a carcinosarcoma because the patient developed metastatic squamous cell carcinoma from an unknown primary 6 months after the initial treatment.
