Allergy Rhinol (Providence) 2020 Jan-Dec;11:2152656720920600. Epub 2020 Apr 20.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Background: Epithelial-myoepithelial carcinomas make up less than 0.1% of head and neck malignancies and are regarded as rare, low-grade malignant neoplasms of the salivary gland. They are thought to arise from intercalated ducts with histopathology showing a classic biphasic morphology of an outer layer of myoepithelial cells and inner layer of epithelial cells. Read More

Trends in Incidence of Cancers of the Oral Cavity and Pharynx - United States 2007-2016.

MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep 2020 Apr 17;69(15):433-438. Epub 2020 Apr 17.

Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, CDC.

Cancers of the oral cavity and pharynx account for 3% of cancers diagnosed in the United States* each year. Cancers at these sites can differ anatomically and histologically and might have different causal factors, such as tobacco use, alcohol use, and infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) (1). Incidence of combined oral cavity and pharyngeal cancers declined during the 1980s but began to increase around 1999 (2,3). Read More

Three Synchronous Primary Extranodal Mantle Cell Lymphomas Involving Torus Tubarius, Posterior Nasopharynx, and Base of the Tongue 65 Years After Treatment of Chronic Sinusitis with Nasopharyngeal Radium Irradiation.

Am J Case Rep 2019 Jul 21;20:1063-1070. Epub 2019 Jul 21.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Charleston Area Medical Center, Charleston, WV, USA.

BACKGROUND Radiation, specifically ionizing radiation, causes broad-spectrum gene damage, including double-strand DNA breaks, single DNA strand breaks, cross links, and individual base lesions, thus causing chromosomal translocations, deletions, point mutations, and, consequently, various types of cancer. Radiation also causes genomic instability in cells, which enhances the rate of mutations in the descendants of the irradiated cell after many generations of normal replications. CASE REPORT We report the first case of mantle cell lymphoma of the torus tubarius, and the first CD10-positive mantle cell lymphoma of the Waldeyer's ring. Read More

Identification of prognostic molecular biomarkers in 157 HPV-positive and HPV-negative squamous cell carcinomas of the oropharynx.

Int J Cancer 2019 12 30;145(11):3152-3162. Epub 2019 May 30.

Department of Surgery, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY.

The incidence of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) has been increasing due to high-risk HPV infection. We explored the significance of genetic alterations in HPV-positive (HPV-P) and HPV-negative (HPV-N) OPSCC patients on long-term outcome. A total of 157 cases of primary resected OPSCC diagnosed from 1978 to 2005 were subjected to a targeted exome sequencing by MSK-IMPACT™ interrogating somatic mutations in 410 cancer-related genes.

Survival Rates According to Tumour Location in Patients With Surgically Treated Oral and Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma.

Anticancer Res 2019 May;39(5):2527-2533

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany.

Background/aim: We evaluated survival rates in surgically-treated oral and oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma patients at our clinic, and determined whether survival differed by tumour locations.

Patients And Methods: In a retrospective study, tumour lesions in 1,486 patients were categorized into 6 groups according to tumour location. Patients' age, sex, tumour-node-metastasis classification, resection status, 5-year and disease-specific survival rates were statistically analysed between groups. Read More

The emerging role of trans-oral robotic surgery for the detection of the primary tumour site in patients with head-neck unknown primary cancers: A meta-analysis.

Auris Nasus Larynx 2019 Oct 4;46(5):663-671. Epub 2019 May 4.

Department of Head-Neck Surgery, Otolaryngology, Head-Neck and Oral Surgery Unit, Morgagni Pierantoni Hospital, Azienda USL della Romagna, Forlì, Italy.

The identification of the site in head neck unknown primary (HNUP) tumour is of utmost importance to help select best treatment while decreasing treatment-related morbidity and mortality. The primary purpose of this study is to demonstrate that TORS may be a valuable tool in detecting primary tumour. Studies were systematically searched in the PubMed, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library and CENTRAL electronic databases. Read More

Nasal Papilloma due to HPV 11 infection.

Clin Ter 2019 Mar-Apr;170(2):e84-e85

Ospedale Pediatrico Bambin Gesù, reparto di Odontostomatologia, Roma, Italia.

Introduction: Human papillomaviruses cause almost all cervical carcinomas, but HPV infections have recently been established as a major etiologic factor for a subset of cancers arising from the oropharinx, including the base of tongue, tonsil, and other parts of the pharinx. Certain types of HPV are considered carcinogenic in humans: HPV 16 and HPV 18 are the most carcinogenic types; HPV 31, 33, 35,39,45,51,52,56,59,66 and 68 also are included in the group of carcinogenic HPV types (1,2,3,4,5). HPV 6 and 11 are associated with genital warts and papillomas are not believed to be carcinogenic (6). Read More

Use of a Flexible-Tipped "Bougie" During Videolaryngoscopic Intubation in a Patient With a Base of Tongue Tumor: A Case Report.

A A Pract 2019 Aug;13(3):91-92

From the Department of Anaesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine, St Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

A patient with a base of tongue tumor was judged to be safe to intubate under general anesthesia, with a new flexible tip "bougie." This enabled rapid and easy navigation around the distorted anatomy caused by the tumor. The bougie's tip can be flexed or extended by activating a slide on the shaft and was intended for use with the hyperangulated blade of a videolaryngoscope. Read More

Anticancer Res 2019 Apr;39(4):1907-1914

Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Oncology-Hematology, VA Nebraska Western Iowa Health Care System and University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE, U.S.A.

Background/aim: HPV-mediated oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma is associated with an increased survival. The prognostic value of HPV status for other primary sites is unclear.

Infected Lingual Thyroglossal Duct Cyst Mimicking Supraglottitis.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Jun;30(4):e380-e382

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Keelung.

A thyroglossal duct cyst (TGDC) is a common embryological remnant that typically presents as an anterior neck mass; however, this malformation can occur in any adjacent area, including the tongue base (lingual type), along the migration path of the thyroid during embryonic development. Lingual TGDC is often quiescent until infection occurs. Supraglottitis or inflammation of the supraglottis, is a potentially life-threatening disease. Read More

Incidentally Detected Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma on 18F-Fluciclovine PET/CT.

Clin Nucl Med 2019 May;44(5):e367-e369

From the Division of Nuclear Medicine, Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging.

We present a case of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the tongue base incidentally detected on F-fluciclovine PET/CT. A 79-year-old man with history of locally advanced prostate cancer (Gleason score 4 + 5 = 9; cT2cN1M0) previously treated with androgen deprivation therapy (luprolide + bicalutamide) presented with a slowly rising serum prostate-specific antigen over 3 years, concerning for recurrent disease. F-fluciclovine PET/CT, obtained to identify potential sites of recurrence, demonstrated prostate bed uptake with possible left seminal vesicle involvement. Read More

TLR5 and TLR7 are differentially expressed in human papillomavirus-positive and negative base of tongue squamous cell carcinoma, and TLR7 may have an independent prognostic influence.

Acta Otolaryngol 2019 Feb 22;139(2):206-210. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

a Department of Oncology-Pathology , Karolinska Institute, CCK , Stockholm , Sweden.

Background: Human papillomavirus-positive (HPV) base of tongue squamous cell carcinoma (BOTSCC) has a better outcome than corresponding HPV cancer. TLR5 and TLR7 expression was previously shown to differ depending on HPV - status and correlate with outcome in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma.

Aims/objectives: For validation, TLR5 and TLR7 were analyzed in a BOTSCC-cohort for correlation with HPV, survival, CD4 and CD8 tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) counts, the latter being a well-documented prognostic marker. Read More
