OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Adenosquamous carcinoma (ASC) is a rare variant of head-and-neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) generally thought to be uniformly aggressive with poor prognosis. However, it remains unknown how overall survival compare with conventional HNSCC. Here we report for the first time that ASC does not necessarily indicate a worse prognosis than conventional HNSCC. STUDY DESIGN Case-control retrospective study. METHODS Forty-two primary tumors of the head and neck, treated… CONTINUE READING
