3 Possible Causes for Calcified Cricoid Cartilage

  • Chondrosarcoma

    Computed tomography revealed a calcified mass in the right cricoid cartilage with intraluminal and extraluminal extension.[]

  • Tracheal Calcification

    Cricoid and arytenoid cartilages calcify in the third decade, but somewhat later than thyroid cartilage.[] Fig. 2: Laryngeal cartilage calcifications: a) Triticeous, b) Superior cornua, c) Thyroid and d) Cricoid. Triticeous cartilages are variable.[] Ossification of the cricoid can be identified even in the presence of thyroid cartilage ossification.[]

  • Laryngeal Stenosis

    cartilages, but separate from the cricoid ( arrowhead ).[] […] arytenoids, which was separate from the cricoid cartilage ( Fig 1 A ).[] Identifying a calcified interarytenoid scar band separate from the cricoid cartilage is important for presurgical planning, and this band can be definitively treated.[]
