abstract

  • Microstaging according to invasion into three tissue compartments was found to be a significant and independent predictor of poor survival in patients with localized, lymph node-negative, Stage I HNMM. The presence of sarcomatoid and pseudopapillary architecture and undifferentiated cells also appear to be associated with significantly poor DSS.
