Objective: The case of an 80-year-old man showing a metastatic cervical small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma is presented. Results: The primary site could not be found at first; it took 8-10 months to detect the primary lesion in the larynx. Conclusion: 18F-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) was useful to find the submucosal lesion. Despite surgical treatments and chemotherapy, the patient survived for only 21 months.
