Six patients (4 males and 2 females) with subglottic cancer were treated in our clinic between January 1974 and September 1994. Clinical and pathological studies were performed on these patients. Patient ages ranged from 48 to 82 years old with an average of 62.7. The ratio of subglottic cancer was 1.1% (6 cases) of all laryngeal cancer (518 cases) treated at our clinic. Of these cases, three were determined to be stage I and three were stage H. The initial subjective complaint was a slightly husky voice in 5 cases and a cough in one case. All cases revealed swelling in the subglottic space. Five cases were treated by radical radiation therapy, but one patient showed recurrence of the primary lesion. This and one other case underwent by total laryngectomy. All patients are currently alive without recurrence.
