Soumen Das, Utpal De, Pradip Kumar Maiti

Abstract


Head and neck cancers are common among males in developing countries. Among head and neck cancers in the United States, supra-glottic laryngeal cancer accounts for 12,500 new cases per year. It responds favorably to radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy depending on the stage of disease. Recurrence is local or loco-regional. We report a unique case of carcinoma of the larynx with rare distal recurrence in the left inguinal lymph nodes.
