Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Squamous cell carcinoma of the nasal vestibule (SCCNV) is an uncommon malignancy. Our purpose is to define the incidence of simultaneous and delayed regional metastasis in SCCNV according to the available literature.

METHODS:

Articles discussing SCCNV and addressing the issue of regional lymph node metastases were reviewed.

CONCLUSION:

SCCNV is an uncommon form of cancer, possibly originating in the mucocutaneous junction. The incidence of lymph node metastasis is variably reported. The data in the literature do not provide a solid basis for recommendations on elective treatment of the neck. Thorough examination of the neck is recommended, preferably with modern imaging techniques.
