Farahat(2) (1)National Cancer Institute - Cairo University, Surgical Oncology Department, Cairo, Egypt. (2)National Cancer Institute - Cairo University, Pathology Department, Cairo, Egypt. Abstract Aim: to highlight the role and benefit of suboccipital lymph node dissection as an integral step in the surgical management of occipital scalp squamous cell carcinoma. Methods: Between 2007 to 2011 fourteen patients (10 males and 4 females) aging 51-75 years old (mean 62.9) with pathologically proven squamous cell carcinoma at the occipital region of the scalp underwent suboccipital and retroauricular lymph node dissection in continuity with the contents of the upper part of the posterior triangle of the neck. Results: Scalp lesions ranged from 3-8 cm in diameters (mean 5.7cm) were all excised with an adequate safety margin of 2 cm. all around and the defect is closed with rotational scalp flaps. The periosteum was always taken as deep safety margin and was microscopically infiltrated in 3 cases. In 2 patients suboccipital lymph nodes were clinically positive. All patients underwent elective suboccipital lymphadenectomy; the number of dissected lymph nodes ranged from 3-9 LNs (mean 5.8 LNs). No serious complications were observed apart from mild wound infections in 2 patients. In 6 out of 14 patients lymph nodes were metastatic (42.8%). 4 patients lost follow-up. All the remaining 10 patients were followed up between 12-26 months (mean 18.4 months). One patient developed local recurrence after 8 months and another one developed nodal recurrence at the spinal accessory group of lymph nodes after 14 months; both patients had +ve LN metastases at the suboccipital nodes at the initial dissection.

Surgical Oncology Department – National Cancer Institute – Cairo, Egypt (fouadfs@yahoo.com) INTRODUCTION Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the scalp is a common cutaneous lesion. Generally it can give metastases to specific groups of regional neck nodes according to its location in the scalp. retroauricular and suboccipital lymph node metastases from malignant epithelial tumors of the posterior scalp cannot be removed adequately by standard radical neck dissection [1-4]. Only by a posterolateral neck dissection can occult and clinically manifest lymph node metastases in this region be adequately removed. This type of neck dissection consists of comprehensive removal of all lymph node-bearing tissue of the retroauricular and suboccipital region in continuity with the contents of the posterior triangle of the neck and internal jugular chain. The operation is usually performed as an en bloc procedure with excision of the primary tumor [1, 5-8]. In this study, we highlight the role and benefit of suboccipital lymph node dissection as an integral step in the surgical management of occipital scalp squamous cell carcinoma.

Farahat 3 PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 2007 to 2011 fourteen patients (10 males and 4 females) aging 51-75 years old (mean 62.9) with pathologically proven squamous cell carcinoma at the occipital region of the scalp (Figure 1) underwent wide local excision of the lesion with suboccipital and retroauricular lymph node dissection in continuity with the contents of the upper part of the posterior triangle of the neck (Figure 2 and 3). Closure of the scalp defects was done using rotational scalp flaps in all our patients (Figure 4). RESULTS [Table1] Scalp lesions ranged from 3-8 cm in diameters (mean 5.7cm) were all excised with an adequate safety margin of 2 cm. all around and the defect is closed with rotational scalp flaps. The periosteum was always taken as deep safety margin and was microscopically infiltrated in 3 cases. In 2 patients suboccipital lymph nodes were clinically positive. All patients underwent elective suboccipital lymphadenectomy; the number of dissected lymph nodes ranged from 3-9 LNs (mean 5.8 LNs). No serious complications were observed apart from mild wound infections in 2 patients. In 6 out of 14 patients lymph nodes were metastatic (42.8%). 4 patients lost follow-up. All the remaining 10 patients were followed up between 12-26 months (mean 18.4 months). One patient developed local recurrence after 8 months and another one developed nodal recurrence at the spinal accessory group of lymph nodes after 14 months; both patients had +ve LN metastases at the suboccipital nodes at the initial dissection.

Farahat 5 DISCUSSION Cutaneous lesions of the scalp are a common presentation in head and neck surgery. Skin cancers of the scalp have a propensity to spread, due to the subgaleal plane that provides limited resistance. At the periosteal level, tumor spread can go for unperceived distances (9). In all our patients the periosteum was excised as a deep safety margin and inspite it was grossly not infiltrated by the tumor, microscopic infiltration was evident in 3 patients. Furthermore, the vigorous blood supply and dense lymphatics create further potential for spread of disease, making the scalp a high risk site. Elective prophylactic lymph node dissection has been proposed for cutaneous SCC greater than 8 mm in depth, but evidence for this is weak (10) and putting in mind that Patients with metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of the scalp have a poor prognosis with most dying from regional relapse (11) and that accurate preoperative identification of lymph node metastases in this region by palpation alone is insufficient (12); so in all our patients we did a suboccipital and retroauricular lymph node dissection in continuity with the contents of the upper part of the posterior triangle of the neck as an integral step of the operation seeking to achieve regional control (Figure 2 and 3). It is well known that seventy five percent of local recurrences and metastases are detected within 2 years and 95% within 5 years (13). In our study, during the follow up period which was up to 26 months, 2 from 10 patients (20%) developed locoregional recurrences which is less than the percentage previously mentioned in the literature. Histopathologically microscopic infiltration of the periosteum was

CONCLUSION Suboccipital lymphadenectomy is a safe procedure with low morbidity and should be done in all patients with scalp squamous cell carcinoma at the occipital region of the scalp which could add to the locoregional control of the disease and serves as a prognostic indicator for future locoregional recurrences.
