The dataset has been developed for the reporting of resection and biopsy specimens of mucosal malignancies of the larynx, hypopharynx and trachea. The protocol applies to all invasive carcinomas of the larynx, hypopharynx and trachea (including the supraglottis, glottis, and subglottis). Salivary-type malignancies arising from mucosal glands of the hypopharynx and larynx should be recorded in this dataset. Mucosal melanoma is presented in a separate dataset. Lymphomas and sarcomas are not included. Malignancies arising at other sites in the head and neck region, and neck dissections and nodal excisions are dealt with in separate datasets which may be used, as appropriate, in conjunction with this dataset. Where more than one anatomically or histologically distinct primary tumours occur, a separate dataset should be completed for each tumour.
This dataset was developed with the kind support of the North American Society of Head and Neck Pathology (NASHNP), American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology (AAOMP), International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathologists (IAOP) and British Society for Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology (BSOMP).
