Abstract

BACKGROUND: The general prognostic factors in larynx tumors are believed to be tumor stage, anatomical location, histological differentiation and the presence of neck metastasis. Effects of tumor invasion to sub-regions of larynx (anterior commissure, ventricle, subglottic space) and over-expression of p53, c-erb-B2 and Ki67 detected immunohistochemically on development of recurrence in patients were investigated in this study.
