The authors differentiate cancer types of the glottis setting out from the free margin or the ventricular surface of the true vocal cord. The latter is considered to be a reliant clinicopathological unit starting from the dividing line of the stratified-ciliated epithelium margins, whereas the so called junctional tumor differs in its histogenesis and invasivity. They give a detailed description of intralaryngeal extension of these tumours on the basis of histopathological investigations. Pathology & Oncology Research, Vol 2, Nr 1, 43-47, 1996

Key words: glottic cancer; intralaryngeal spread; histopathology
