Unexpected occult malignancy diagnosed during tonsillectomy surgery for obstructive sleep apnea: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 May;99(18):e19793

Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, School of Medicine, Kyungpook National University, Kyungpook National University Chilgok Hospital, Daegu, South Korea.

Rationale: Many previous studies have investigated the necessity of routine histopathological analysis of tonsillectomy specimen, and most recent studies have suggested that such an analysis is not justified in asymptomatic patients or those with no risk factors for malignancy.

Patient Concerns: A 59-year-old man diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea underwent surgery, including tonsillectomy; a tonsil specimen was sent to the department of pathology.

Diagnosis: Although the patient did not exhibit any tonsil-related signs or symptoms, nor did the appearance of the tonsil appear to be pathological, the right tonsil specimen was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, with detection of human papilloma virus 16. Read More

The prognostic effect of anatomic subsite in HPV-positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma.

Am J Otolaryngol 2019 Jul - Aug;40(4):567-572. Epub 2019 May 15.

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, United States of America.

Background: Since most HPV-associated disease occurs in the tonsillar-related areas (TRA) - palatine and lingual tonsils, the effect of HPV on survival in non-tonsillar oropharyngeal subsites (nTRA) is not well established. The objective of this study was to use a large population-based cohort to investigate the survival impact of HPV in nTRA subsites versus TRA subsites.

Methods: This SEER database study was conducted by stratifying the HPV-positive oropharyngeal cancer cohort into two primary groups, TRA and nTRA. Read More
