A retrospective study over a period of six years of those patients suffering from T2 supraglottic carcinomas has been made, with specific attention directed to the prognostic importance of cervical nodal metastases. Seventy-six cases were reviewed, and 43% had cervical metastases. Treatment was by standard laryngectomy and neck dissection. A three-year cure rate of 84% exists with absence of cervical metastases. A 30% cure rate exists with adenopathy. Clinically “positive” cervical nodes were histologically abnormal in only 55% of cases.
