Overview

NCI Definition: A primary or metastatic malignant neoplasm involving the larynx. The majority are carcinomas. [1]

Malignant laryngeal neoplasms most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, CDKN2A, PIK3CA, KMT2D, and CCND1 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Malignant Laryngeal Neoplasm

TP53 Mutation, TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, TP53 Missense, KMT2D Mutation, and PIK3CA Mutation are the most common alterations in malignant laryngeal neoplasm [2].
