BACKGROUND The clinical significance of flow cytometric DNA content in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma is still controversial. PATIENTS AND METHODS We prospectively investigated the prognostic importance of tumor size (T), lymph node involvement at presentation (N), degree of histologic differentiation (G) and DNA ploidy (DNA) in 429 surgically treated patients with primary oral squamous cell carcinoma using multivariate statistics. RESULTS T, G and DNA were independent predictors of… CONTINUE READING
