Late skip lymph node metastasis of oral squamous cell carcinoma or metastasis of unknown second primary tumor? Answer by mitochondrial DNA analysis.

Abstract

Patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) are at risk of developing additional tumors in the head and neck. The detection of a late lymph node metastasis poses a problem to the clinician: it could be a delayed regional metastasis or a new metastasis from a yet unknown second primary tumor.
