Brief history:

75-year-old man with a history of squamous cell carcinoma of the mouth, which was treated with wide local excision followed by radiation therapy. The patient had positive margins after his surgery. We were asked to restage the patient's tumor nine months later while he was hospitalized for dehydration and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) placement.
