Abstract

In previous research the authors have remarked that some hystological patterns - macrophagic hyperplasia and thymus-dependent areas hyperplasia - when prevailing in cervical nodes of laryngeal cancer patients, possess a positive prognostic value. In this study the possible relationship between the results of E and EAC-rosettes and prevailing hystologic patterns in cervical nodes is investigated. A positive correlation was not found. Conclusively, the inconsistency of aspecific tests for prognostic purposes and the need for a specific immunological monitoring system are outlined.
