    Abstract: The basaloid carcinoma is a rare and distinct type of squamous carcinoma. Of all the squamous carcinomas, the basaloid tumor is noted for its high aggressivity and fast replication rate. It is usually discovered within the upper levels of the larynx (supraglottis), the tongue base or the piriform sinuses in male patients ranging from sixty to eighty years old. The aggressivity of the tumor also means its discovery is usually a late event thus associating a relatively low survival rate within the first 5 years. The current paper presents the case of a patient diagnosed with a malign tumor of the larynx which is then identified as being a squamous basaloid carcinoma. The medical review of the patient reveals a long history of smoking and also pulmonary tuberculosis, for which the patient underwent left pneumonectomy.
