Background: Planned neck dissection after organ preservation protocol for larynx and hypopharynx carcinoma is controversial. In this study we evaluate the clinical stage, clinical response, and pathological findings in the neck dissection specimen of patients submitted to an organ preservation protocol.

Patients and Methods: This study includes 46 patients with larynx or hypopharynx carcinoma submitted to an organ preservation protocol (paclitaxel and cisplatin concomitant with radiation therapy).
