      Chondrosarcoma of the larynx: a clinicopathologic study of 111 cases with a review of the literature.
      LCs are typically low-to-moderate grade lesions located in the cricoid cartilage. In practice and regarding the tumor grade, the treatment may consist of therapeutic abstention and follow-up or surgery ± adjuvant radiotherapy. For some aggressive or recurrent LCs, the total laryngectomy (TL) may be proposed and some authors performed TL through Transoral Robotic Surgery (TORS) using the da Vinci System.

      Transoral robotic total laryngectomy.
      In this editorial, we aim to report a multifocal recurrence of LC, which was primarily treated with TORS-TL, to shed light on potential limitations of TORS-TL.
