A Rare Case of Inguinal Lymph Node Metastasis from Supraglottic Laryngeal Carcinoma
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.
