2/733. Squamous cell metastasis from the tongue to the myocardium presenting as pericardial effusion.

    Cardiac metastasis from head and neck cancer is rarely encountered. We present a base-of-tongue squamous cell carcinoma with metastasis to the heart that was diagnosed antemortem. autopsy series indicate that tongue cancer may metastasize more frequently to the heart than from other head and neck sites. However, none of these studies was controlled. Most importantly, cardiac metastasis should be suspected in any patient with cancer in whom new cardiac symptoms develop. The diagnosis is best confirmed with two-dimensional echocardiography or cardiac MRI. A myocardial or endocardial biopsy specimen can be obtained with angiographic guidance. Despite the improvement in diagnostic capability, available treatments are only palliative. All patients eventually die of their metastatic disease.

3/733. Axillary nodal metastases in head and neck cancer.

    BACKGROUND: Axillary node metastasis is an uncommon occurrence in squamous carcinoma of the upper aerodigestive tract. methods: The tumor registry of The Johns Hopkins University Department of otolaryngology-head and neck Surgery contained four cases of metastasis to the axilla from head and neck primary sites. A retrospective review of these cases was performed. RESULTS: Each patient had been initially treated for cancer years earlier including surgery and radiation to the neck. A recurrent cancer or a new primary then developed in the upper aerodigestive tract prior to the development of the axillary metastases. CONCLUSIONS: The common course of disease in these patients suggests that alteration of the lymphatic anatomy by previous treatment may have caused a new pattern of metastatic spread upon reseeding from the mucosa, resulting in the axillary metastases. Routine surveillance of the axillae by physical examination and/or computerized imaging in at risk patients may permit the early diagnosis of axillary metastases.

4/733. Multidisciplinary treatment, including laser hyperthermia, for extensive regional metastasis of a penile tumor.

    BACKGROUND: There is no reliable treatment for penile tumor with lymph node metastasis. methods: We report on a patient with a penile tumor with extensive regional metastasis that was successfully managed with combined laser hyperthermia, radiation and chemotherapy. RESULTS: The patient has survived more than 7 years without evidence of disease. CONCLUSIONS: Multidisciplinary treatment, including laser hyperthermia, may be useful for the treatment of regional metastasis of penile tumor.

5/733. carcinoma of the uterine cervix metastatic to behind the zygomatic arch: a case report.

    PURPOSE: We propose to present a novel case of a genital malignancy metastatic to the head and neck. carcinoma of the uterine cervix is the third most frequent malignancy of the female genital tract. Early detection and improved radiation and surgical techniques have resulted in better control of the pelvic tumor and a greater incidence of distant metastasis. Metastases to the soft tissue of the head and neck region have not been reported. methods: We present the first known case of a 35-year-old woman with cancer of the uterine cervix who presented with metastasis to the soft tissue behind the zygomatic arch. RESULTS: The patient received radiation therapy to the zygomatic region and cisplatin therapy with a near-complete remission. CONCLUSION: This case shows that not all squamous cell cancers detected above the clavicles are from a thoracic or a head and neck primary tumor. The atypical location should alert the physician to suspect distant metastasis, rather than locoregional disease.

6/733. Intramedullary spinal metastasis from carcinoma of the cervix.

    Intramedullary spinal metastases are rare and prior to the availability of MRI were seldom diagnosed antemortem. lung and breast carcinoma are the most common primary sources. Cervical carcinoma is the least likely source of intramedullary spinal metastases. A case of intramedullary spinal metastases is described in a 29-year-old woman with squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix.

7/733. Squamous cell carcinoma in a renal transplant recipient with linear porokeratosis.

    A 40-year-old man developed squamous cell carcinoma on a perianal lesion of linear porokeratosis after renal transplantation. The tumor metastasized to the left inguinal lymph node 25 months after the primary tumor was excised. p53 overexpression was observed in the tumor cells, but not in the porokeratotic lesion. Interestingly, continuous subcutaneous infusion of peplomycin for the lymph node metastasis significantly improved the warty lesions of porokeratosis. In this patient, immunosuppressive agents might have accelerated the development of carcinoma on a skin area with malignant potential.

8/733. A case of central carcinoma of the mandible arising from a recurrent odontogenic keratocyst: delineation of surgical margins and reconstruction with bilateral rectus abdominis myocutaneous free flaps.

    A case of central carcinoma of the mandible arising from a recurrent odontogenic keratocyst is reported. A 38-year-old man was admitted to the Tokai University Hospital due to postoperative infection of a recurrent odontogenic keratocyst of the left mandible. He had had a cystectomy for an odontogenic keratocyst 4 years ago. The lesion revealed bony destruction of the mandible with worm-eating shaped margins with extension to the facial skin. A biopsy specimen revealed squamous cell carcinoma. The mandible was resected with facial skin and the sublingual space was dissected to preserve the lingual nerve. The oral and the facial resections were reconstructed with a titanium plate and bilateral rectus abdominis myocutaneous free flaps. The plate was removed due to infection around the margins and readjustment of the flaps was conducted 5 months after the surgery. He has not had a local relapse, metastasis, or incisional hernia for 8 months following surgery. Good occlusion has been attained by the residual mandible, and he is able to eat without any problems.

9/733. Metastasis of an esophageal carcinoma to a giant gastric ulcer.

    In patients with esophageal carcinoma it is considered that stomach metastasis is induced mainly via the lymphatic route rather than via the bloodstream route that is common in other types of distant organ metastasis. A 56 year-old patient is reported who underwent synchronous subtotal esophagectomy and total gastrectomy for a middle third esophageal carcinoma and a giant peptic ulcer within the gastric fundus. The final histopathologic examination revealed a squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus with concomitant squamous tumor implantation within the gastric ulcer. The increased cell proliferation in the ulcer margin can serve as a "biological background or base" for implantation.

10/733. Lymphoepithelioma-like esophageal carcinoma: report of a case.

    We herein report the rare case of a patient suffering from lymphoepithelioma-like poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus. The patient was a 74-year-old woman in whom an esophageal tumor was found during an operation for thyroid cancer. After performing a subtotal thyroidectomy and cervical esophagectomy, esophageal reconstruction was performed using a free jejunal graft. Based on the results of the pathological examination, the esophageal tumor was diagnosed to be primary lymphoepithelioma-like esophageal cancer, not metastasis of either unknown nasopharyngeal cancer or thyroid cancer. Since surgery, she has survived postoperatively for more than 4 years with no evidence of recurrent disease.
