Histologic specimens from 48 patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the larynx treated exclusively by surgery were studied with special attention paid to the reactivity of regional lymph nodes. The lymph nodes were classified into four microscopic patterns of immune response: lymphocytic predominance, sinus histiocytosis, germinal center predominance and unstimulated or lymphocytic depletion. As a result no correlation were then made between the patterns and survival rate at 5 year follow-up.
