Carcinoma of unknown primary (CUP) with N1 neck node is rare, and management of patients generates interest as well as poses challenges. It can also be a topic of debate between radiation oncologists and surgeons. Both radiation and surgery can be used for management, but in some cases, treatment can be multimodality especially if the surgeon is unsure of the microscopic disease, a small ulcer, or a node with microscopic extracapsular extension. We hereby discuss and review an interesting case on CUP with a N1 neck node that was managed using multimodality treatment.
