Abstract
Introduction & Aim: Lymph node metastasis in Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC) is common at the time of presentation. Prior to the advent of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)-driven disease, regional metastasis was associated with poor prognosis, but today advanced HPV(+) disease as per the Tumor Nodes Metastasis (TNM) classification, demonstrates a different natural history with improved responses to treatment and 5-year survival. This is a retrospective review of patients undergoing neck dissection for HNSCC and demonstrates remarkable discrepancies in outcomes between HPV(+) and HPV(-) disease. Methods: Ethical approval was obtained (UKCRN 8130; ISRCTN 71276356; and REC references 09/H0501/90 and 07/Q0405/1). 662 patients diagnosed with HNSCC were retrospectively identified. HPV-status was determined using a combination of p16 immunohistochemistry and HPV in situ hybridization; 131 patients were HPV(+) and 531 HPV(-). 337 patients underwent neck dissection and were included in the study. Results: HPV(+) disease demonstrated better overall survival than HPV(-) disease. Extracapsular spread (ECS) was seen in 44.1% of HPV(+) cohort, but had no effect on overall survival (OS) (p=0.269, HR 0.99). Contrarily, 18.9% of the HPV(-) cohort had evidence of ECS and this had a detrimental effect on OS (p=0.027, HR 1.9). In the HPV(+) cohort, a mean of 4 positive nodes were harvested, in comparison to 1.5 in HPV(-) patients (p=0.005). Five or more positive nodes were found to be significantly correlated with poor OS in HPV(+) disease (p<0.001). Conclusion: We show that the presence of ECS is only linked with a poor outcome in patients who are HPV(-). Our data also demonstrates that number of positive nodes is linked to survival.
