OBJECTIVE: We sometimes experienced patients with primary unknown cervical lymph node metastasis. In such cases, if computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, laryngoscopy and gastrointestinal endoscopy cannot detect a primary site, there is no other effective method to identify a possible primary tumor. We investigated whether narrow-band imaging can detect a ...
