Abstract

Adenosquamous carcinoma is a high-grade malignant tumor and is known to be more aggressive than conventional squamous cell carcinoma in the head and neck region. Initial precise diagnosis of ASC and consequent appropriate surgical resection of the primary lesion with neck dissections of regional lymph nodes is significantly important to achieve a good prognosis from ASC.
