Abstract

A sixty year old patient underwent radical Radiotherapy for a transglottic laryngeal carcinoma and the primary site was free of disease 6 weeks later. The initial work up showed a clear roentgenogram of the chest and the vertebral architecture was normal. The patient had neurological symptoms few months later and a diagnostic CT Scan of brain showed intracranial metastases. Locally he was disease free as in the chest. After a palliative course of radiotherapy of the brain, the patient expired. The probable route of spread was discussed.
