Abstract

The authors, after some notes of topographic anatomy about the lymph nodes of the cervical area, examine the different therapeutic managements of lymph node metastasis of lip and oropharynx carcinoma. From these data, the authors put in evidence that almost all the surgeons and the radiotherapists do agree about the inclusion of radiotherapy, polychemotherapy and, more often, surgery in the treatment of cervical lymph node metastasis. The authors experience suggests no treatment of the cervical region in case of N0 lower lip cancer, especially if the neck is thin, and easy to examine, but it is necessary a careful follow-up in order to discover as soon as possible a clinic metastasis. They do not exclude that this behaviour could be suggested also in other neoplastic disorders, but the decision should be based on the histologic kind and grading, on the extension and on the possibility to exclude any cervical involvement. Beside this, the authors come to the conclusion that, in case of N1, N2, N3, the treatment of the cervical regions can not be avoided. The surgical treatment is the neck dissection, functional or radical, alone or together with radiotherapy and polychemotherapy. They finally report that the postoperative radiotherapy for cervical metastasis must be properly used when the capsular rupture is histologically proved.
