  • Although the presence of squamous cell carcinoma within the peritumoral vascular spaces of primary lesions of the oral cavity and oropharynx has been statistically linked to regional lymph node metastases, the association of this finding with disease control and survival has not been well demonstrated. To evaluate this relationship, we have reviewed the clinical and histopathologic features of 65 consecutive cases of previously untreated T2 or greater squamous cell carcinoma of these sites… CONTINUE READING
