Abstract

Cure rates for photodynamic therapy of the multiple primary head and neck tumours were lower than previously described for first primaries, but were still very encouraging for this difficult patient population. The high cure rate obtained in stage I multiple primaries emphasises the importance of a meticulous follow-up of patients treated for the head and neck cancer to detect new tumours at a curable stage.
