Background: It is unclear whether bone invasion in small oral cavity squamous cell carcinomas (OCSCC) results in worse prognosis. Methods: 254 OCSCC were identified and divided into 3 cohorts: 1) ≤ 4 cm with no bone invasion, 2) ≤ 4 cm with bone invasion, 3) ≥4 cm or other factors (e.g. skin invasion, deep muscle invasion, etc.) that would qualify for AJCC T4 classification aside from bone invasion. Depth of bone invasion (none, cortical, medullary) was also recorded. Results: Cohorts 1 and 2 had similar outcomes. Cohort 3 had lower rates of RC (p = 0.04), DSS (p < 0.01), and OS (p < 0.01). On multivariate analysis, margin status and medullary bone invasion were associated with worse outcomes. Conclusions: Bone invasion does not appear to significantly influence outcomes in patients with small primaries treated with surgery/radiation. Medullary bone invasion appears to result in reduced rates of control and survival. Head Neck, 2013.
