Carcinoma epidermóide de língua :correlação clínica, histológica e imuno-histoquímica




Oral squamous cell carcinoma is the most common malignant neoplasm in oral cavity. Several studies have been carried out to establish biologic behaviour criteria of this neoplasm. Thus, the purpose of this experiment was to performe a clinic, morphologic and immunohistochemical analysis, by the expression of cytokeratins 7, 10, 13, 14, 16 and 19 in 30 cases of tongue squamous cell carcinoma from the files of Dr. Luiz Antônio Hospital (Natal-RN). It was verifeid of the immunoexpression the correlation clinic estadiament and histologic gradation system proposed by Bryne (1998), in order to investigate the use of these intermediate filaments as an indicator of tumour progression. Data was collected from the patients file and it was observed that information regarding sex, age and race was resemble to the literature. Data obtained from disease evolution, clinic estadiament, metastasis and expression of cytokeratins 7, 10, 13, 14, 16 and 19 was submited to statistical analysis (Test K2), which showed that only the histologic gradation didnt demonstrated significant correlation to the clinic variables. The expression the cytokeratins presented variation in the analysed tumours. CK 10 expression showed significant correlation to metastasis, and the presence of CK 16 was related to disease evolution (obit/remission) and also with the T3 and T4 of TNM. These results evidenced that metastasis and TNM showed a good efficacy as a prognostic indicator. The histologic gradation proposed by Bryne (1998) didnt reflect the biologic behaviour of the studied tongue squamous cell carcinoma, and the analysis of some intermediate filaments of cytokeratins seems to reflect the biologic behaviour and agressivity of some oral squamous cell carcinoma
