AbstractPurposeOur aim is to determine the impact of the size of ROI in detecting subcentimeter metastatic lymph nodes in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Secondary aim is to determine the impact of the histopathologic grade of the primary cancer on the ADC value of the metastatic nodes.MethodsThe prospective study included 51 patients with histopathologically proven HNSCC at the primary site. Primary site includes oral cavity, oropharynx, larynx, and hypopharynx. ADC values of the lymph nodes were measured on ADC maps by placing two ROIs in the lymph nodes (0.2 cm2 in the center of the node and...

CONCLUSIONS: The Neck Imaging Reporting and Data System used for surveillance contrast-enhanced CT after treatment of oral cavity and oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma provides acceptable score reproducibility with limitations in patients with posttherapeutic changes but no cancer recurrence.

Elisabetta Fratta Persistent infection with high-risk Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) leads to the development of several tumors, including cervical, oropharyngeal, and anogenital squamous cell carcinoma. In the last years, the use of high-throughput sequencing technologies has revealed a number of non-coding RNA (ncRNAs), distinct from micro RNAs (miRNAs), that are deregulated in HPV-driven cancers, thus suggesting that HPV infection may affect their expression. However, since the knowledge of ncRNAs is still limited, a better understanding of ncRNAs biology, biogenesis, and function may be challenging for improving the d...

p16-positive oropharyngeal cancer with rare thyroid metastasis : A case report. J Med Invest. 2020;67(1.2):189-191 Authors: Suzuki H, Sasaki E, Nishikawa D, Nishikawa D, Koide Y, Beppu S, Terada H, Hanai N Abstract Thyroid metastasis is rarely diagnosed, and the treatment outcomes in p16-positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma patients with rare thyroid metastasis have not been fully investigated. Here we describe the case of a patient with p16-positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma who was diagnosed with cT4 N2M1 with rare thyroid metastasis. The patient was a current smoker and was p...

Abstract The head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is an aggressive human malignancy diagnosed in more than 800 000 new cases worldwide, and mostly arises in the oral cavity, oropharynx, larynx, hypopharynx, and nasopharynx. The study presented here aimed to determine a possible association of rs11515 and rs3088440 gene polymorphisms in the CDKN2A gene (cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor 2A), as well as rs769412 and rs937283 in the MDM2 gene (murine double minute 2), with oral cavity cancer in a sample of Polish population; CDKN2A is crucial in regulating the cell cycle while MDM2 is an oncogene invo...

Conclusions: This in vitro study confirmed that HPV-positive OPSCC was more radiosensitive. Transfection with the E6 oncoprotein enhanced the radiosensitivity in HPV-negative OPSCC by impairing the DNA repair mechanism and enhancing apoptotic cell death. PMID: 32362999 [PubMed]

Conclusion: Head and neck cancers are the third most common cancer in Bhutan after stomach cancer and cervical cancer. Thyroid, oral cavity and hypopharynx are the top three anatomical sites for head and neck cancers in Bhutan. The current epidemiological and histopathological profile of head and neck cancers will form a baseline of information and basis for further research on head and neck cancers in Bhutan.

Conclusions This study suggests that in patients with human papillomavirus–related oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma solid lymph node metastases generally decrease in size at a greater rate than cystic lymph nodes after induction chemotherapy.

Rationale: Many previous studies have investigated the necessity of routine histopathological analysis of tonsillectomy specimen, and most recent studies have suggested that such an analysis is not justified in asymptomatic patients or those with no risk factors for malignancy. Patient concerns: A 59-year-old man diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea underwent surgery, including tonsillectomy; a tonsil specimen was sent to the department of pathology. Diagnosis: Although the patient did not exhibit any tonsil-related signs or symptoms, nor did the appearance of the tonsil appear to be pathological, the right tonsi...
