Introduction: Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) of the head and neck are considered an infrequent clinico-pathological entity. Combined modality treatment represents an established therapeutic option for poorly differentiated forms where distant metastasis is a common pattern of failure.
Materials and methods: We report on four cases of locally advanced NECs of head and neck treated with sequential chemo-radiation consisting of three cycles of cisplatin and etoposide followed by loco-regional radiation to the head and neck.

Introduction: Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinomas (MANECs) are rare entities in which at least 30% of neoplastic cells are neuroendocrine in nature (WHO 2010 classification). They result either from two independent lesions that merge together or are unique lesions with different cell populations intermingled.
