Abstract Metachronous mediastinal and lung metastases (MMLM), important sources of morbidity and mortality, in people with head and neck cancer (HNC) have received little attention. Between 1980 and 2004, 37 patients with treated HNC and MMLM diagnosed on follow-up imaging (with histological confirmation in 14 cases) were identified. The median interval from diagnosis of HNC to the appearance of MMLM was 14.5 months. The overall median survival was 4 months, and the 1-year crude survival rate (C...

Background:Horner syndrome caused by metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck is not common, and when diagnosed, may have serious clinical implications. We aim at highlighting the clinical significance of this finding.Methods:We retrospectively reviewed charts of 6 patients with Horner syndrome secondary to metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) in the neck.Results:All 6 patients had pathologically confirmed nodal metastatic HNSCC. There was one unknown primary a...

Salivary duct carcinoma (SDC) is a rare and extremely aggressive salivary gland cancer. An 81-year-old woman with SDC underwent a total parotidectomy with facial nerve sacrifice and a neck dissection. Following surgery, she was diagnosed with disseminated bone marrow metastases. She underwent chemotherapy and trastuzumab for palliation. We present a case of SDC of the parotid which was diagnosed with disseminated bone marrow metastasis following surgery for the primary. This case also highlights...

Key Clinical Message Although tumor lysis syndrome is well described, it is rarely seen or suspected in solid malignancies. Early recognition of this entity is paramount in reducing morbidity and mortality. Treating physicians should be aware of this possibility in solid tumor patients with either bulky disease or extensive liver involvement.

Fibrosing mediastinitis (FM) is a rare disorder resulting from abnormal immunological-mediated fibro-proliferative reaction in the mediastinum. Here, we describe a case of a 46-year-old female with an incidentally found 11×9 cm posterior mediastinal mass. Multiple biopsies of this unresectable, 18-fluorodeoxyglucose avid mass revealed marked fibrosis without any evidence of malignancy, suggesting idiopathic fibrosing mediastinitis as our initial diagnosis. Multiple interventions including a tria...

Objectives/Hypothesis HPV-positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma has a more favorable prognosis when compared to HPV-negative disease, regardless of the presence of nodal metastases. However, the importance of contralateral neck treatment based on HPV status has not been well studied. Given the historically poor prognostic implications of cervical nodal metastases, this study sought to elucidate the relationship between HPV status and contralateral/bilateral nodal metastasis in patients ...
