Comprehensive Surveillance: Surgical Manipulation of Usual Drainage Pathways

In many cases, patients who undergo extensive treatment for metastatic oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) will exhibit alterations to drainage pathways in the head and neck as a result of surgical manipulation.  For this reason, THANC presents two unusual cases of OSCC to the level 6 nodal compartment in order to emphasize the importance of monitoring all neck regions for recurrence after surgical intervention.
