We analyzed 32 cases of lateral wall oropharyngeal carcinoma treated at our institution retrospectively. Five-year overall and disease-specific survival rates were 50% and 62%, respectively. The 5-year locoregional control rate was 57%, and including salvage therapy it was improved up to 62%. It was difficult to control locoregional tumor with surgery in far-advanced cases where the tumor had invaded the nasopharynx or larynx. There is a possibility of salvage if the recurrence is solitary, but a case with multiple recurrence is difficult to salvage.
