In an effort to discuss current practices, latest developments and to come to a consensus to recommend management strategies for different anatomical subsites of HNCs for Indian patients, a group of experts medical, surgical and radiation oncologists and dentists was formed. A review of literature from medical databases was conducted to provide the best possible evidence base, which was reviewed by experts during a consensus group meeting January, to provide recommendations.

New options for patients with hematologic malignancies stemming from recent FDA approvals are making an impact on treatment strategies recommended in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology. The guidelines, which take into consideration the clinical evidence that the FDA evaluated in approving novel agents and new indications for existing drugs, are commonly used as a baseline in helping oncology specialists decide on which treatments are best for their patients. Due to the rarity of this disease, there have only been a small number of studies that evaluate patients with this malignancy, and treatment strategies are relatively limited.
