Title:
Spindle cell carcinoma of the tongue in a long-term survivor of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Authors:
Shaw, M P; Wallace, W Hamish B; Eden, Tim O B
Abstract:
A 25-year-old male previously treated (age 9 years) for acute lymphoblastic leukemia developed a spindle cell carcinoma of the tongue. Possible causes for the development of his second malignancy are discussed. A combination of scatter from cranial irradiation, poor oral hygiene, alcohol consumption, and cigarette smoking is likely to be contributory. Genetic predisposition can never be fully excluded.
