Abstract The use of photodynamic therapy for the treatment of malignant and non-malignant conditions is increasing. This paper demonstrates the efficacy of a second-generation photosensitizer, Foscan, in the primary treatment of a wide range of mucosal head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. Tumours ranged in stage from T(1) to T(3). A complete response to primary treatment was seen in 19/21 patients (90 per cent). In laryngeal cancer recurrent after radical radiotherapy, one out of four patients treated obtained a complete response (25 per cent). Six patients (24 per cent) required surgery after photodynamic therapy, for local recurrence or dysplasia. Mean follow up was for 27.3 months (standard deviation 20.6 months).
