Delineation of the primary tumour clinical target volumes and neck node levels selection of parotid cancers

Abstract : Salivary glands tumours are uncommon tumours showing a large diversity of histological types. This article presents a synthesis of patterns and paths of invasion of parotid glands tumours in order to propose an approach of the delineation of primary tumour clinical target volumes and of the selection of lymph nodes target volumes. This article does not discuss treatment indications but defines clinical target volumes to treat if radiotherapy is indicated. Postoperative situation being the most frequent, the delineation of primary tumour clinical target volume is based on an anatomical approach.
